Metal Nanostrand Additives for Conductive Resin Systems for Aircraft Composite Structures

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: George Hansen, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $89,077.00
Abstract:
"Lightning strike protection for composite aircraft components is traditionally provided by application of a secondary surface process, usually consisting of a metal mesh in additional resin. These systems are difficult to apply and repair, are parasitic inweight, and are expensive. An alternate… More
