The results of this SBIR are directly related to the development of the Z-2 space suit. As a generic technology, the developments can be easily applied to other applications within NASA where damage tolerant composites are sought. This includes pressure vessels, habitation structures and aircraft skins.
The technology will be applicable to any application that is seeking damage tolerant composites. This includes automotive structural components, pressure vessels, aircraft nacelles, fuselage and wing skins, transport flooring, etc.
