This final report details progress made on various topics related to advanced metallic and advanced metallic composites. In this program, the work covered the material needs for enabling a variety of missions including access to space and hypersonic flight for global access and meeting the continuing demand for higher performance, more efficient jet engines. The focus areas covered a broad range of technologies comprising thermal protection materials, fiber lasers for directed energy, Integrated Computational Materials Science and Engineering ICMSE, superalloy development, hybrid disks, hot structures for hypersonics, functional materials for energy needs, and nanoenergetic materials for munitions needs. This report will cover three categories of research advanced ceramicscomposites, advanced metals, and functional metals. Much of this research has been published elsewhere in the open literature as journal articles and papers, and is referenced in the text.
