Specialty Engineered Materials Solutions – Aerospace and Defense
Equipment manufacturers in Aerospace and Defense industries depend on their suppliers to provide reliable components. These components are made with highly regulated materials and processes for critical operations such as space flight, missile defense, and satellite communications. Such components must be able to operate in extreme environments for extended periods of time.
Aerospace engineers face challenges of designing and producing cutting-edge technologies for integration into aerospace vehicle systems such as of aircraft, spacecraft, propulsion systems, satellites, and missiles used in communications, transportation, defense, and exploration applications. Engineers must possess deep knowledge and skills in specialty materials and their function in aerospace products, components, and subassemblies.
One important focus in developing space technologies is thermal management. To maintain stable systems in space, heat must be shed when there is too much of it and generated when temperatures are too low for optimal operation. Dissipating and reducing heat can involve conductive heat sinks, heat blocking, transfer, and insulating systems.
Electromagnetic and radio frequency interference are additional problems that require the specialty components to shield essential electronics systems.
