Air Force awards STTR Phase II Reactive Fusion Welding for Ultra-High Temperature Ceramic Composite

Phase II will build on the major discoveries from Phase I and work to commercialize ceramic welding technology by bringing suitable ceramic welding expertise, facilities, and consumables to military and civilian customers.  Research efforts will focus on reduction of weld porosity through control of material composition, billet purity, weld atmosphere, and joint preparation.
