Abstract:

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has sponsored laboratory development programs in dynamic compaction technology, self- propagating high-temperature synthesis, and plasmachemical technology. System Planning Corporation has supported those programs by assessing relevant Soviet programs in each technology field and by providing assistance in transfer of basic technology from the laboratory programs to defense system programs and industrial applications. This document is the final technical report. It describes accomplishments in technology transfer and technology assessment tasks for the period of June 1984 through March 1986. Emphasis in laboratory programs has been on fabrication of advanced refractory ceramic compounds by new technologies that promise quality products not otherwise available at reasonable cost. The processing techniques are dynamic compaction technology DCT, self- propagating high-temperature synthesis SHS, and plasmachemical technology PCT.
