Abstract:

The objective of the program is the development of high temperature circuit analog radar absorbing materials, designs and prototypes. Material development efforts have involved silica fiber reinforced ceramic composites based on a chemically reacted aluminum phosphate AlPO4 ceramic matrix. Matrix development has involved approaches to achieve thermal expansion compatible with the fibrous reinforcement, while maintaining satisfactory mechanical and electrical properties over an ambient to 1600F range. Simplified fabrication processing characteristics for the composites have been emphasized. Modified author abstract
