Ceramic materials offer an unparalleled combination of materials properties that enable some of the toughest missions in space: high operating temperatures, low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE), low mass profile, chemical inertness, and tunable electrical and thermal properties. By integrating and further developing emerging technologies in additive manufacturing (AM) for ceramics, Canopy enables rapid, low-investment ceramics development opportunities for our customers.
3D Printed Oxides: Alumina, silica, zirconia, alumina-enhanced zirconia, cordierite
We vertically-integrate production of thermal protection systems (TPS) for space vehicles. Our approach centers on rapid commercialization of heritage materials to supply the rapidly-growing new space and hypersonics industrial bases, while transforming design and manufacturing practices of TPS to support future space systems.
We operate at the upper bounds of high-temperature advanced composites by expertly integrating materials such as silica fibers, alumina fibers, quartz fibers, and ultra-high modulus carbon. Coupled with our proficiency in utilizing resins like phenolics, cyanate ester, and CMCs, we deliver state-of-the-art composite solutions tailored to the most demanding applications.
