The Materials Domain of the MCM ITP covers a broad range of technologies which are fundamental to the overall operational capability of future missile systems and supporting capabilities in modelling & simulation, lifing and low cost manufacturing.
The global aim is to prepare future airframe solutions in accordance with missile systems’ technical objectives:
The domain aims to develop innovative techniques that complement the emergent technologies developed across the programme and that enhance the capability of missile systems’ solutions through their utilisation. The perimeter of this domain includes the following technologies.
MBDA F leads the Electronics Sub-Domain in domain 8 “Materials and Components for Missiles” in the frame of “Innovation and Technology Partnership”. The Domain is seeking early-stage technologies (TRL 1-4) for future electronics in guided weapons. A major area is to explore and demonstrate how innovative and emerging technologies will allow enhanced capabilities for the next generation of weapon systems by providing safe and airworthy features at the lowest possible costs.
Topics considered within the electronics sub-domain include:
