Materials Research and Survivability Studies


Wednesday, November 12, 2014


The objective is to conduct Basic, Exploratory and Applied Research and Development (R&D) in order to transition and advance the state-of-the-art in materials technologies, concepts, applications associated with the control or manipulation of and the protection from various effects associated with photonic light and electromagnetic energy sources. This research will directly contribute to hardened materials, survivability and photonic materials technology advancement and/or will compliment other ongoing research efforts. Core technical areas of interest include Optical Materials and Processing, Hardening Materials and Processing, Electro-Optic/Infrared (EO/IR) Sensor Protection, Warfighter Protection, Structural Protection, Optical Technology, Computational and Theoretical Studies on Functional Materials, Proactive Threat Defeat, and High Energy Laser Source Materials. The research in this program will advance hardened materials technologies in areas such as sensor protection, hardened structural materials, and personnel/aircrew protection. This will translate to added capabilities and increased survivability for aircrew and systems, leading to increased mission effectiveness for the warfighter.
