Novel Materials improve Existing Products.

An exemplary client success story of Accelerated Insertion of Materials is QuesTek and Navy carrier aircraft landing gear and tail hooks. Under a low $7 figure contract with the Navy, QuesTek designed, produced, qualified, and placed the certified products, made of QuesTek’s proprietary Ferrium®M54 alloy, into flight operations on the Navy’s T-45 trainer aircraft in 1/3 of the time of a typical design-to-flight cycle. The hardness and toughness of the new gear enabled 20% more landings on the platform, saving $ Millions in maintenance costs, preventing numerous accidents and loss of aircraft (a T-45 costs $17.2M each), not to mention young aviators (priceless?).
