Health Monitoring of Vital Space and Aeronautic Composite Presentation Transcript
Health Monitoring of Vital Space and Aeronautic Composite StructuresAn extremely sensitive health monitoring system to be deployed for continuous use on space craft. Its first stages of development have been done for composite stealth naval ships. The core material provider has also supplied materials for the Atlas rocket.The technique will also be used in different stages of production design and manufacturing in order to ensure the highest quality of final assemblies.

Health Monitoring of Vital Space and EXTERNAL CUSTOMERSAeronautic Composite Structures Space aeronautics car shipping railway, wind power oil energy production energy distribution industries. STRATEGIC ALIGNMENT WITH OCT ROADMAP The project can benefit the following of the 16 OCT Prioritized Top Technologies. The Lightweight and Multifunctional Materials and Structures [only technology included in all of three main objectives A, B and C]; Fission Power Generation [A,B];Entry, Descent and Landing (EDL) Thermal Protection Systems (TPS) [A,B]; and (Nuclear) Thermal Propulsion [A]. In total covering eight of the twenty-three Top Technologies boxes.
