Abstract : The objective of this research effort was to identify and catalog the engineering properties of commercially available, advanced composite materials with potential for use in lightweight shelter construction. A number of commercially available, potentially air-mobile, protective shelter construction materials were identified and divided into four main categories: Composites, Cores, Adhesives, and Ballistic Materials. The best materials in each category were described and a brief summary of each materials engineering properties was presented. The manufacturer of every material was identified.
