The kinetics of weakly nonequilibrium subterahertz thermal phonons is studied in nanodispersed iron-containing corundum-based cermets at liquid-helium temperatures. For the chosen method of fabricating cermets (which restricts grain growth), iron inclusions are shown to be described as point trapping centers of phonons. The transport of nonequilibrium phonons is analyzed in a ceramic matrix containing metallic trapping centers.
