Are there other areas you’d like to see improved?

Composites have a lot of legs and reach into other parts of society. The same things it’s doing in aerospace, it is or could do in energy, electronics and infrastructure. The composites story is not just about an airplane (which is an interesting story in itself), but is a first step in increased design capability. Usually, you have a material and you say, “This is what it is, now let’s go design an airplane or a car out of it.” Instead, composites can be tailored to a specific use. That’s a different view of the future than people have thought in past.
