ABSTRACT

This Aerospace and Defense TOE highlights innovations in composites for aviation, including composite propellers, shape memory alloy composites, ceramic matrix composites, carbon nanotube composites, a carbon fiber bonded composite repair technique, and graphene nanocomposites. Aerospace and Defense TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) delves into the technologies and applications that shape both commercial and military aviation and space exploration, ranging from engine design to the latest avionics systems. The defense portion of the publication explores the many facets of 21st century military technologies, such as UAV improvements, and cutting edge battlefield medical treatment. The Advanced Manufacturing and Automation (AMA) Cluster covers technologies that enable clean, lean and flexible manufacturing and industrial automation. Technologies such as three-dimensional (3D) and four-dimensional (4D) printing, wireless sensors and networks, information and communication technology, multimaterial joining, composites manufacturing, digital manufacturing, micro- and nano-manufacturing, lasers, advanced software, and printing techniques, are covered as part of this cluster. The technologies covered here impact a wide range of industries, such as the impact semiconductor, automotive and transportation, aerospace and defense, industrial, healthcare, logistics, and electronics industries. Keywords: Aerospace composites, carbon nanotubes, carbon fiber bonded composite, shape memory alloy, ceramic matrix composites, graphene.
