Fabrication, Assembly, & Integration

Innovative solutions for the Fabrication, Assembly, and Integration of flight hardware systems

Our engineers have decades of experience in the fabrication of flight hardware, much of which dealing with launch vehicles, spacecraft, fixed-wing aircraft, and rotary-wing aircraft. Our manufacturing experience covers many areas of primary and secondary structure fabrication, fastening techniques, and material processes and procedures. Our technical approach to manufacturing flight hardware always includes evaluating the most cost-effective and efficient methods of fabrication. These fabrication methods must meet all of the design requirements, including the harsh environments the structure will experience during its lifecycle. These fabrication methods must also meet the overall cost and schedule objectives of the program.
