Aerospace & Defense
Ceramics have been integral in the aerospace industry due to their low-density, high compressive strength and thermal stability. However, their range of applications currently remains limited due to their generally brittle fracture behavior. Structures in nature, such as mollusk shells and enamels, have unusual combinations of stiffness, strength,
Fully Customizable Noise & Vibration Damping Material from -54°C (-65F) to 204°C (400° F) Using Silicone
Viscoelastic materials such as pressure sensitive adhesives are used as constrained damping layers in a variety of applications. Historically, materials such as foams and acrylic and rubber adhesives have been popular choices. However, in the aerospace and defense markets, innovation is occurring at a rapid pace. For example,
Solar and cosmic radiation are a major threat to human activity in space. Life on Earth is protected by Earth's magnetic field which deflects high energy particles from the solar wind and other cosmic sources.
Almost twelve years after India’s 1st lunar exploration mission, India bounced back towards the moon with Chandrayaan-2. It was launched in an attempt to deploy a rover on the lunar surface. ISRO had attempted to give the craft a controlled and soft landing.
Gliding is a quite sophisticated aeronautical sport practiced in many countries. Although being a bridge for professional pilots training, it is not a popular sport due to its complex operation, high costs and one reason is the use of planes to launch and tow the gliders.
