Abstract:

This purpose of this project is to develop an advanced Transparent Conductive Oxide (TCO) coating and protective hardcoating for use on the dome of passive infrared (IR) guided missiles. The coatings will be deposited using innovative energetic deposition techniques producing films of high optical and electrical quality that are very dense and highly adherent. The TCO coatings simultaneously have high electrical conductivity and IR transparency of greater than 90% between 3-5 m when incorporated into an antireflection coating. The hardcoating will be suitable as a protective layer against sand and water drop impact erosion during flight and captured-carry.
