  • Patent number: 10844524
    Abstract: An item may include fabric or other materials formed from intertwined strands of material. The item may include circuitry that produces signals. The strands of material may include non-conductive strands and conductive strands. The conductive strands may carry the signals produced by the circuitry. Each conductive strand may have a strand core, a conductive coating on the strand core, and an insulating layer on the conductive coating. The strand cores may be strands formed from polymer. The conductive coating may be formed from metal. Electrical connections may be made between intertwined conductive strands by selectively removing portions of the outer insulating layer to expose the conductive cores of overlapping conductive strands. A conductive material such as solder or conductive epoxy may be applied to the exposed portions of the conductive cores to electrically and mechanically connect the overlapping conductive strands.

  • Patent number: 10751983
    Abstract: According to exemplary inventive practice, ceramic powder or slurry is selectively deposited at many discrete locations on each of many fiberglass fabric substrates. The sizes and/or shapes of the ceramic deposits vary among the substrates. The substrates are selectively ordered and stacked so that perpendicular through-plane alignments of respective ceramic deposits form selected three-dimensional geometric shapes. The resultant stack of substrates, characterized by many three-dimensional ceramic inclusions, is impregnated with an elastomer or an epoxy that binds the ceramic-deposited substrates together, resulting in a finished composite product. Inventive composite structures can be multifariously designed and embodied to afford selected ballistic and/or structural and/or electromagnetic qualities.

  • Patent number: 10746046
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a method for manufacturing a preform made of reinforcement fibers woven in a longitudinal direction. The preform is impregnated with resin in order to form an elongated element having a variable transverse cross-section. In one form, the method includes the step of simultaneously including a reduction (or increase) in width and an increase (or reduction) in height. The variable cross-section includes, along the length thereof, a consistent number (c) of continuous warp threads arranged in layers. The method for reducing width includes carrying out a change in weave, adding additional weft threads, and simultaneously drawing the teeth of the longitudinal beater reed closer together so as to increase the number of layers.
