Hybrid composite materials: tailoring for specific performance
I received a link to an interesting technical paper presented at CAMX by AGY (Aiken, SC, US). It got me thinking about hybrid composites.

Fiber-metal laminates in the spotlight
Interest in FMLs is growing again as aeroengineers search for lightweight solutions adaptable to new narrowbody commercial aircraft.

OOA composites in next-generation launch systems
As United Launch Alliance ULA replaces Atlas and Delta with next-generation launch rockets under the Vulcan name, supplier Ruag Space has been selected to provide lower cost/improved quality out-of-autoclave fabrication of Vulcan’s composite primary structures. Ruag will manufacture 5.4m payload fairings and 400-series interstage adapters for ULA’s Atlas V rocket.
