Concurrent Technologies Corp. has received two subcontracts to research and develop technologies for potential use in manufacturing tactical shelter systems and airborne platforms for the U.S. Army.
The company said Wednesday it will collaborate with multiple universities to study engineered and strategic materials, additive manufacturing models and materials by design under a 12-month subaward from Northeastern University.
NU awarded the company a separate one-year subaward to examine the application of cold spray technology to repair Army and Defense Department air systems.
The second project will focus on producing structural and nonstructural aluminum alloy-based components with the additive manufacturing technique.
“Both of these efforts will leverage technologies that are at the core of our engineering R&D expertise,” said Ed Sheehan, CTC CEO and president.
Sheehan added the company aims to leverage its experience and technology to support the Army’s Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center on the tactical shelter project.
The subcontracts are worth $1 million combined.
