CONTRIBUTION TO PROJECT
e.g. are you a manufacturer, a research expert in the field, can you offer testing, simulation etc
Meggitt Aircraft Braking Systems is a company within the Meggitt PLC with over 30 years experience in development of carbon-carbon (C-C) composite materials for extreme environments and applications such as aerospace brakes, nuclear reactor tiles and medical implants. We are now developing a new generation of composite materials that will contain nano-carbon materials such as carbon nanotubes and carbon nanofibres for improvements in mechanical, thermal and sensing properties of the composite. We are offering sub-scale manufacturing of these composites, testing and research expertise in the field of carbon nanotube/nanofibre synthesis and composites (Dr Bojan O. Boskovic).
Are you linked to other potential partners?
(please list organisation type e.g. SME and country)
We have contacts with the University of Cambridge(Prof Alan Windle and Prof John Robertson)
PROFILE OF CONSORTIUM SOUGHT
Type (e.g. “SMEs producing a new micromoulding material”), competence sought and YOUR intended role in the project (Max 10 lines)
We are looking for possible partners for EU FP7 collaborative R&D in further development of nano-carbon C-C composite materials technology and we would be very interested to receive information about or from companies and universities that would be interested to provide additional testing, process improvement and/or application for some of our nano-carbon C-C composite materials relevant to aerospace, automotive, energy and medical applications.
