Chadwick, Ashley Robert and Dreher, Patrik Nikolas and Petkov, Ivaylo and Nowotny, Sebastian (2019) A fibre-reinforced thermoplastic primary structure for sounding rocket applications. SAMPE Europe, 17-19 Sep 2019, Nantes, France.

This paper presents work done at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) to realise a primary carbon fibre-reinforced PEEK (CF-PEEK) structure for use in the ATEK sounding rocket mission programme. As part of the programme, one of the metallic primary structures has been substituted with an anisotropic ([45,0,-45,0]S3) CF-PEEK component produced using entirely in-situ Automated Fibre Placement (AFP) technology at the Institute of Structures and Design in Stuttgart, Germany. Having passed all necessary test phases, the component is now ready to be integrated into the main system, with launch scheduled for early 2019.
