Abstract : We provide an overview of recent US Naval Research Laboratory research and development on multifunctional structure-power materials/components for enhancing the performance of unmanned systems through reduction of parasitic (unifunctional) structure mass/volume. Design rules and tools for composite multifunctional materials and three multifunctional structure-power concepts: structure-battery, autophagous (self-consuming) structure-fuel, and solar-skin will be examined. The potential… CONTINUE READING
