    Thin-ply composite laminates are of interest for several applications in aerospace and other high-performance industries due to their ability to delay transverse microcracking and delamination in static, fatigue, and impact loadings. It is essential to understand the evolution of thermal residual stresses during cure to optimize the manufacturing process of thin-ply composites for deep-space applications. In this research, processing induced residual stresses in thin-ply laminates are evaluated by devising a novel in-situ experimental approach. Thin-ply prepreg laminates are cured in a specially designed autoclave with viewports with plies laid upon a flat tool and a curved tool. The curved tool configuration used in this research is designed to simulate cryogenic fuel tank surfaces. The evolution of residual stresses in terms of out-of-plane displacement is characterized using Digital Image Correlation (DIC) during the autoclave cure cycle.
