Abstract : This document, Vol. III, Part 4, of the Final Technical Report contains the Integrated Composite Center Requirements State-of-the-Art Document. This document cites the present state-of-the-art of manufacturing composite structures. It provides such information upon which to build improvements into the methodology that presently exists for manufacturing composites and composite structures. The identified improvements provide a baseline structure for designing and implementing an Integrated Composite Center. Phase I of the Integrated Composites Center statement of work outlines three areas which are to be incorporated into the State-of-the-Art Document (SAD). The first area addresses general information which contains the approved identification, nomemclature, and authorized abbreviations for the system; the second area is a list of applicable documents which would include previously developed technical documentation relating to this project, and relevant documentation concerning related projects; the third area, which is the crux of the SAD, provides a narrative on the relevant State-of-the-Art information and a determination of available technologies that are commercially available. In addition, technology voids shall be identified and prioritized in terms of cost/performance drivers and human factors.
