DASH X Class II UAV.
DASH X Class II UAV.

At CAMX Expo 2017, Chomarat will present two new applications use its C-PLY carbon multiaxial Non Crimp Fabric (NCF) – a drone wing called DASH X and an all-carbon kayak.

The drone wing called DASH X is a Class II UAV designed in partnership with VX Aerospace and Northrup Grumman Corporation. The drone can be folded and stowed inside a cylindrical container that is carried and deployed from a tactical aircraft.

C-PLY is used in the construction of the wing, the horizontal stabilizers, the vertical fin and all of the control surfaces.

"When it comes to wing skins, there is not a better material. The extremely thin non-crimped laminate with customizable ply angles is perfect. Strength and stiffness are tailored for the loads. There are no weight and performance compromises created by undesired 'off-axis' ply angles. No other hand-placeable material can do this," said VX Aerospace Chief Engineer Bob Skillen.

Chomarat will also exhibit an ultralight, all-carbon kayak, the product of a collaborative project with Confluence Outdoor. Its carbon C-PLY increase the kayak's performance 10 times compared to a classic construction.

"We chose C-PLY for the incredible mechanical properties of the non-crimp fabric. The ability to reduce the number of plies to have strength that is equal to that of its woven counterparts has helped us produce a lightweight kayak that can push the boundaries of our sport and achieve something that has never been done successfully by anyone else," said Oliver Wainwright, Product Engineer of Confluence Outdoor.

"The added benefit of being able to choose the fiber angle allows us to place material in an optimal position for our boat shape and get the directional stiffness we require."

CAMX Expo 2017 will be held from December 12-14 in Orlando, the US.
