Abstract : The work reported within this document encom passes initial evaluation and study of materials and processes intended to provide data which will allow the design and fabrication of radomes capable of long term service at 800-1200 F. The concept under investigation is based on an alu minum phosphate matrix and fibrous reinforcement. Investigation has been conducted on the effects of different ratios of reactants, curing time and temperature and molding pressures on the aluminum phosphate binder. Various coatings to protect the fibrous reinforcement from degrading effects of the AlPO4 have been evaluated. (Author)
