A Lockheed Martin engineer reviews carbon-enhanced fiber under a microscope. This agreement between ANS and Owens Corning is expected to shorten the development time to produce customizable material attributes for commercial and defense applications.

Applied NanoStructured Solutions LLC (ANS), a subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Corp., and Owens Corning signed a joint development agreement to combine the carbon infusion technology of ANS with Owens Corning's reinforcements expertise to create a family of next-generation composite materials. The companies expect the carbon-enhanced reinforcements to be scalable to meet the demands of large-volume applications and provide mechanical properties with customizable electrical and thermal conductivity. Potential applications range from wind turbines for renewable energy to protective packaging for electronics to composite armor for defense applications.
