Spawned by a small business collaboration, the Air Force and aerospace industry now have a more environmentally-friendly and lower-cost option to protect a key aircraft system.
With support from the Air Force Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) Program, Utah-based ES3 developed a process for plating steel aircraft landing gear components with Low Hydrogen Embrittlement Zinc-Nickel. Along the way, ES3 worked closely with a unit of prime contractor Boeing, as well as coating manufacturer Dipsol of America, to make the technology a reality.
