Reinforcement of the european composites production for space application

01 January 2018 Project Sheet

INEGI's Contribution
  • Development of new formulations for prepregs to be applied in future Spacecraft structural composites with high performance.
  • Development of process conditions to obtain prepregs suitable for spatial requirements (satellite and launcher oriented).

Results /Impact
  • Manufacture of four subcomponents demonstrating the potential of the new materials (fibres and pre-impregnated materials) developed in Europe – two for launchers and two for satellites.
  • Qualification of industrial and research and development (R&D) facilities, helping to reduce the European space sector’s reliance on non-European sources for carbon fibers and pre-impregnated materials.
