Military & Defense Composites

Military & Defense Composites

With an extensive range of advanced materials and processes, Aerodine Composites is well-positioned to support the specific needs of today’s military personnel. Military and Defense customers highly value our key strengths: weight reduction, outside-the-box problem solving, corrosion resistance, part consolidation, and industry-leading time-to-market. Soldiers globally are committed to their duty of protecting the country and we are here to support their mission-critical objectives while keeping them safe.

Materials traditionally used in the defense sector such as titanium, steel, and aluminum all present severe disadvantages with weight and maneuverability, especially due to continually evolving military threats. The inherent material characteristics of our composites are ideally suited for military, defense, and security products, namely in terms of:

Weight

The engineered composite structures enable significant weight savings, high payload and fuel efficiency, and highly portable end-use components.

Strength

Composites have anisotropic strength properties, meaning they are stronger in one direction. This means stacking multiple composite layers in different orientations allows the fibers to bear multi-directional forces and loads.

Fatigue

Composites have a nearly infinite fatigue life. When used in highly stressed areas, composite components far outlast similarly designed metallic structures based on fatigue loading.

Corrosion Resistance

The corrosion resistance of composites is advantageous in challenging environments since they do not rust or corrode like traditional metals.

Appearance

Composite components can be molded to almost any shape, allowing designers to create aerodynamic and aesthetically pleasing shapes with minimal effort.
