European Defence Agency supports new materials project
October 17, 2016
Portuguese project “Advanced Lightweight Impact Resistant Materials, Components and Structures” (ALIR-MCS) aims at developing a new kind of composite material with high-impact resistance, for the production of components and structures. The objective is to make sure the new material can have both civilian applications (especially in the aeronautical sector) and defence applications, mainly in bulletproof equipment. The company X AERO SYSTEMS will lead the consortium and Critical Materials will be one of the stakeholders.
