Wow, thanks, Jim. I wasn't sure if readers wanted something this technical, but many discussions like this one just don't reduce down. RTM and RIM are standard processes that have been around awhile but not for high-performance materials like this one.

Rob, I discovered the US Navy's research when I was looking into "nautical" robots. One of the robotic jellyfish we wrote about, RoboJelly, as well as its big brother Cyrus, are projects funded by the Office of Naval Research. The NRL is only one entity involved in various types of research, and it also serves the Marines.

Impressive details on an advanced subject matter

Ann-very informative article.  Kudos to your level of intellect and experience in this very technical arena of advanced material sciences. I knew that you were a materials person, but you've just raised your own bar! You've delved into materials processing topics I have absolutely zero knowledge of, including resin infusion molding (RIM) and resin transfer molding (RTM).  

Regarding the physical properties descriptions of this stuff  --- (Phthalonitrile – did I pronounce that correctly-? ) --- thermal and water-absorption resistance, coupled with its strength are impressive.  Thanks for opening this door for me; looking forward to learning more.

this looks like an interesting development, Ann. I had no idea the US Nancy was in the composite research business.
