ATK and its affiliate COI Ceramics receive contract award from Boeing for ceramic matrix composites

ATK affiliate COI Ceramics Inc., was awarded a contract by Boeing Research & Technology for the development and demonstration of a Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) exhaust nozzle for the FAA's Continuous Lower Energy, Emissions and Noise (CLEEN) program.

CMCs represent an additional offering in the aircraft composites market for ATK, which also has a growing business base in commercial and military aircraft structures and fan containment cases for large commercial aircraft engines.

The Boeing Company (NYSE: BA) and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration recently announced that they will work together to speed the development and application of environmentally progressive technologies to produce cleaner and quieter commercial jet aircraft.

The more efficient engines that will power these aircraft require exhaust materials that are capable of withstanding higher temperatures than the steel used in today's commercial jet engines. ATK's CMCs are as light as aluminum and can withstand temperatures over 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit. These revolutionary composites also help improve acoustic performance.

"Ceramic composites provide strength comparable to steel at the same weight you find in polymer composites," said Scott Richardson, general manager COI Ceramics Inc. "We look forward to providing this advanced technology to aid in the improvement of aircraft engines."

The Boeing technologies being developed under the CLEEN program will be flight tested aboard two demonstration vehicles, the next-generation Boeing 737 in 2012 and a yet-to-be-determined twin-aisle airplane in 2013.
