Advanced Divert and Attitude Control Systems (DACS)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
FMW Composite Systems, Inc., in collaboration with Aerojet (OEM), proposes to develop nano-enhanced titanium alloy components for advanced light weight Divert and attitude control systems (DACS), which are capable of replacing current materials to achieve improved performance, net weight reductions, improve producibility, improve reliability, and lower cost. A plan of approach will be developed using design, experimental, modeling and simulation tools. The proof-of-concept will be demonstrated by fabricating an article out of a selected nano-enhanced titanium alloy using an affordable process leader. Test coupons will be produced and characterized for relevant properties to demonstrate the performance. Preliminary manufacturability analysis and design trade studies will be performed to assess the benefits over the baseline.
