Abstract : The most significant progress during this period was the completion of our first full sized (4'x4') conformable 3-3 composite array and it's delivery to Fred Geil of Northrup Grumman for testing. The array manufacture was a joint effort between Hi-Tech and Alfred University (Matt Creedon and Walter Schulze) with the next five arrays to be produced entirely by Hi-Tech Ceramics. We are still dependent on Alfred University for their poling and testing equipment and are seeking their input on additional design refinements for the next arrays.
