This composite technology can provide cost, performance, and design advantages where traditional prepreg and OOA prepreg materials have been used or specified such as future production of spacecraft, large space structures, space stations, satellite, orbiters, landers, rovers, and habitats. Some specific programs include the Orion (MPCW) and future MMSEVs. The technology may also find use for cryogenic tanks where thin-ply ADFP product preforms would be resistant to micro-cracking.
Opportunities for commercial applications come from NASA funded crew and cargo space transportation partners, commercial aircraft, rotorcraft, satellite, and transportation structures. This OOA infusion composite technology will be targeted for future large structural parts in which layup and manufacturing time has excluded the use of traditional prepreg materials due to out-time concerns. Also, applications may include parts which have traditionally utilized aerospace prepreg materials.
