Abstract

Advanced materials and structures are key priorities in both the Defence Technology Strategy and the UK aerospace strategy. Development and exploitation of advanced materials and composite technology underpins many aspects of the design, development and manufacture of the civil and military platforms and equipment, and the MoD has stated that it will ensure its capability to exploit new materials and approaches to structural design. This presentation focused on composites and the industry/university interface.
