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.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
