Ceradyne receives contract for next-gen ceramic missile radomes

  • 18-Feb-2010 09:03 EST

NAVAIR awarded Ceradyne Inc. a $342,000 research phase I contract to develop a next-generation high-performance ceramic missile radome (nose cone). The material will be a variation of Ceradyne’s silicon nitride (Si3N4) advanced ceramic technology. Ceradyne intends to subcontract certain tasks to Boeing. Phase I will be completed this year, and other phases are expected to be awarded over a three-year period.
