Deepsea submersible incorporates composite pressure capsule
Spencer Composites Corp. (Sacramento, Calif.) fabricates the inner carbon/epoxy composite pressure capsule for a submersible deepsea vessel the late Steve Fossett was to take to the depths of the Pacific Ocean's Mariana Trench.

CF 2009: Comment on key end-markets
Conference keynoter Jens Hinrichsen (Aerospace Advisory Group LLC) evaluated factors likely to influence materials selection for aircraft that will replace the Airbus A320 and Boeing 737 families.He started by establishing structures that he believes are very likely or somewhat likely to be composite structures: the empennage and rear pressure bulkhead and frame, the center wing box, floor beams and the unpressurized fuselage.

Carbon Fiber: UP!

The markets: Oil and gas (2011)
Composites now are widely recognized in deepwater drilling scenarios, because their ability to stand up to the harsh subsea environment enables oil & gas prospectors to retrieve reserves at greater sea-floor depths. 

Carbon Fiber 2007 looks forward with optimism
As high demand confronts a still limited supply, industry insiders and analysts meet to assess carbon fiber’s future and review emerging applications.
