Abstract:
ADA Technologies, Inc. received an $80,000 contract from the U.S. Navy for development of high performance fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites for use in the design and manufacture of robust and reliable submarine and submersible hatches. ADA, in partnership with Alion Science and Technology, Mystic, CT bagged the six-month contract.

Dallas, TX | Posted on October 8th, 2010

The Phase I research focuses on the use of nanomaterials to greatly enhance the interlaminar properties of FRP materials. ADA's strategy is based on identifying nanomaterials that are relatively inexpensive and available in large volumes. "We expect ADA's material technology to provide dramatic improvements in key material properties, while having minimal impact on material and manufacturing costs," said Douglas Campbell, ADA R&D program manager. "Furthermore, we are especially excited as it addresses a significant performance limitation of FRP composites and thus would have broad application to not only the marine industry, but also the aerospace, automotive, renewable energy, sporting goods and virtually all industries that make use of FRP composite material."
