Veelo Technologies wins navy contract to enhance composite solid rocket motors for tactical missiles & space systems

The Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division has contracted General Nano, LLC to enhance the performance of traditional graphite epoxy composite tactical missile solid rocket motor cases.

The purpose of the project is to improve high structural loading, high aerothermal, Electromagnetic Environmental Effects (E^3), and lightning strike protection requirements of surface launched tactical missile systems.

To meet project requirements, Veelo Technologies will leverage its proprietary composite protection materials, VeeloVEIL and VeeloSTRIKE.  Both advanced materials solutions were developed for next generation composite platforms and have demonstrated the unique ability to meet multiple electromagnetic effects requirements in one solution – lightning strike protection, EMI shielding and survivability.  Additionally, Veelo’s materials are significantly lighter than incumbent systems.  Weight savings is a premium value for tactical missiles and space applications.

“Veelo Technologies is honored to partner with the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division and other leading companies in the composite solid rocket motor supply chain to execute this contract.  The rocket propulsion market is experiencing tremendous growth, and we are pleased that our composite protection materials will help our customers achieve their weight and performance objectives.”
