This is a process of layering an ultra-thin coating of titanium on each carbon fiber. Commonly done to reduce interaction and oxidation between the carbon fibers and other materials. A number of medical, space, and industrial applications for it.
I haven't seen any claims that the combination is any stronger than regular CF, but perhaps it is.
There are a number of other materials that have been used for coating CF, such as nickle.
