The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is a DoD Agency that has become known as a laboratory and incubator of innovation. DARPA’s mission is to look beyond the reality of today and to focus on the potentiality of the future. Specifically, its job is to identify current or future advances that have the potential to bend today’s security trajectories— advances that, years from now, could disrupt the stability the Nation enjoys today as well as advances that, over the same period, could enhance national and global stability. DARPA explicitly reaches for transformational change instead of incremental advances. It works within an innovation ecosystem that includes academic, corporate and governmental partners, with a constant focus on the Nation’s military Services, which work with DARPA to create new strategic opportunities and novel tactical options.

Free Form Fibers

Free Form Fibers (FFF) is the sole producer of “laser-printed” Silicon Carbide, Boron, and Boron Carbide fibers in the world. FFF's unique process harnesses the flexibility of additive manufacturing and the purity of Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) in a highly flexible production system for hundreds of simultaneous continuous fibers. If a CVD precursor exists for a given material, it is likely that Free Form Fibers can produce fiber from it. Filaments are small diameter, homogeneous, without a dissimilar core, and can be hundreds of feet long. Diameters can be customized from 15 to 80 microns and modulated along the length. Highly uniform Pyrolytic Carbon and Boron Nitride interphase coatings have been demonstrated with subsequent coating with Silicon Carbide. As with fiber, if a CVD precursor exists for a given material, it is likely that Free Form Fibers can coat its fibers with that material. Coated fibers are available in tapes of parallel continuous filaments or in tows of continuous filaments appropriately sized for CMC applications.
