Excerpt: (U) A. Mission Description: This Advanced Technology Development program develops and demonstrates affordable aerospace vehicle structures by utilizing innovative metallic and composite structures technologies to reduce the cost of airframe ownership. Innovative structural concepts integrate these two types of materials with design and monitoring techniques to develop and demonstrate solutions and repairs for corrosion fatigue, multi-site damage fatigue, and other damage to which aging aircraft are susceptible. The goal of this program is to develop technologies to restore structural integrity, extend life, and improve survivability of the current fleet, and future fleet of manned and unmanned aerospace vehicles. The results are less maintenance intensive, more durable, and more dependable structures for current and future aerospace systems. This yields lower cost of ownership (by delaying acquisition and by reducing support and maintenance costs), restored and improved sortie rates (due to durability, damage or threat tolerance, and design for supportability), and reduced observability (both radar cross section and infrared). The increased funding in this PE is due to the increased emphasis by the Air Force on advanced structures for space applications.
