— The Air Force Research Laboratory, based at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, has contracted with a Cincinnati manufacturer to work on material for aircraft structures.
A&P Technology Inc. has been awarded a cost-plus-fixed-fee contract for $8,904,957 for the “design for manufacture of attributable aircraft primary structure program,” a Department of Defense release said Tuesday.
A&P has worked with GE Aviation on material for the GEnx engine fan casing. The company specializes in the braiding of fiber reinforcements for stronger materials.
This contract is for the design and manufacture of an aircraft structure, using fabrication processes that may be automated “leading to greatly reduced costs associated with manufacturing,” the DoD said.
