Abstract : The Materials and Processes Technology Area part of the Air Force Science and Technology (AF S&T) program responsible for developing materials, cost effective processes, nondestructive evaluation technology and repair maintenance techniques of advanced materials to support the entire Air Force mission. Over the years many outstanding contributions have been made by this are including superalloys for high temperature turbine engines; ultra high purity silicon for infrared detectors; permanent magnets for microwave sources, power generation and conditioning applications; advanced composites for aerostructures; carbon barbon nozzles and nosetips for missiles; high temperature lubricants and thermal control coatings for spacecraft.
