Composite Technology Development (CTD) has developed new composite bearing materials (slippers) for use in aircraft carrier arrestment systems. These materials allow for low friction sliding and relative movements of components in the system to absorb the energy of stopping fixed-wing aircraft on aircraft carrier flight decks. This technology addresses two leading causes of system downtime – slipper wear and slipper swelling;. Swelling and wear factors have been reduced by an order of magnitude relative to the current material. Prototyping of required slipper shapes has also been conducted. CTD is seeking support from the Navy in terms of providing a material and performance specification tied to our material development. We also are seeking support to transition from the lab to LRIP to full production over the next 2 to 5 years.
