Advanced Composites Group Secures US Navy Contract

20 May 2011

Advanced Composites Group (ACG) has been awarded $1.967 US million from the United States Navy for research and development efforts in support of its Out-of-Autoclave (OoA) processable materials and technology.

ACG explain that their OoA programme “Lightweight Composite Structures phase 3” will continue the work of previous programmes to increase the technology readiness level of a number of OoA capable prepreg materials, including the MTM 45-1 and MTM47 systems, to permit deployment on military and other air and space vehicles.

The programme will be administered through Naval Air Systems Command Patuxent River to support advanced fibre placement, process development, the manufacture of demonstrator parts and design database generation.
