With the aerospace and defence industries poised for growth in virtually every segment; the commercial, general aviation, military and space sectors are a 'must watch' area for businesses seeking new business and technology opportunities. Accompanying this growth, polymers will play an increasing role, with, for example, a near doubling of the aerocomposites market being predicted by 2016. Polymers in Defence and Aerospace Applications took an in depth look at how polymers are increasingly being used to meet the developing demands of this industry in areas such as weight minimisation, increased strength and enhanced affordability. Both defence and aerospace are industries where the performance requirements of polymer -based materials are continually being pushed to the limits of what is possible in order to help achieve these goals, and where there is a constant demand for new and improved materials for a wide range of existing and new applications. This conference covered all of the important polymer related areas specific to the defence and aerospace industries, from state-of-the-art R&D to characterisation, fabrication, technology development and many new and emerging applications.
