Abstract : The objecive of this program is to develop the material product forms. processes,and equipment for automated fabrication of low cost composite submarine structures. These developments will be demonstrated through the fabrication and delivery of man rated demonstration article components, including spheres and cylinders with integral domes. This report is the Seventeenth Interim Technical Report for this program. It represents results of progress in: (1) Fabrication and assembly of the Deliverable Cylinder; (2) Characteriztion of as-fabricated material property specimens; (3) Procurement of a dual use fiber placement machine; (4) Quality evaluation of deliverable; (5) Analysis of subcomponents; (6) Process monitoring techniques; (7) Technology transfer.
