The Air Force will require aerospace vehicles and weapon systems with performance superior to those of any potential adversary. Conductive nano-reinforcements offer an excellent potential for further improvement of structural performance and lightening protection of polymer composites used in numerous Air Force systems. Success in the proposed research will lead to scalable, low-cost method of producing SWNTpolymer composites thereby overcoming current obstacle to high volume loading of nanoreinforcement due to processing problems. Moreover, the research will lay a foundation for broader technology for multifunctional composite structures.
