Metal Matrix Composites (MMC)

High Performance Materials Group (HPMG)

Metal Matrix Composites (MMC) ceramic reinforced composites are already utilized for state of the art aerospace applications. MMC have demonstrated ballistic performance of lightweight ceramics, while approaching multi-hit capabilities of metal armor. High Performance Materials Group (HPMG) is developing various processing and applications of MMC armor, including combined light structures integrating MMC and metals, which could offer strength and ballistic protection at reduced weight, and weight reduction of MMC, by encapsulation of high performance ceramics.
