Aerogel Modified Structural Thermal Protection System, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Aerogel Modified Structural Thermal Protection System, Phase I
This program will mature and further develop structural syntactic foam insulated integral Thermal Protection System (TPS) designs and materials as an enabling technology for the highly reliable, reusable launch system. This proposed SBIR program will build on Powdermet's extensive prior experience with SiC rigid insulators, CMCs, and ultrahigh-temperature coatings, combined with design modeling from MR&D associates that identified positive directions needed in foam-supported integral structural TPS systems.
