Description

The Department of Defense (DOD) is seeking proposals for the development of an Electromagnetic Protection Coating for Artillery Projectiles. The Army is looking for innovative solutions to integrate electromagnetic protection materials onto extended range artillery rounds. The proposed solutions must be able to withstand artillery gun launch loads, conform to the projectile's geometry, and perform at elevated skin temperatures caused by aerodynamic heating. The Phase I contract will involve research into ULTCC formulations or other electromagnetic materials that can operate in environments up to 650°C. Phase II will focus on fabricating material samples for mechanical properties testing and sintering them onto metal alloy substrates. Phase III will involve large-scale production and the fabrication of prototypes that can withstand shock loads up to 30,000 G's. The proposer will work with an Army prime or industry transition partner to fully develop and integrate the design onto the target platform. The technology falls under the Advanced Materials critical technology area and is restricted under export control laws. The solicitation is open until March 31, 2025.
