Resources to support research and development of the Photonic, Electronic, & Soft Materials technologies with applications ranging from propulsion, airframes, hypersonic structures, munitions, and space, and centering particularly on fuel efficiency, directed energy protection, hypersonics and structural materials affordability. They also support research into rapidly transitioning functional material systems and processes to enable fight-through capability and human-machine teaming. These resources are designed to support researchers seeking to change the paradigm for structural component design, certification, and life management practices through timely development and digital integration of emerging material knowledge tailored for specific applications, and to discover, assess feasibility, identify challenges, and ensure availability of innovative material systems that generate and control information and energy.
