In the ever-evolving landscape of the aerospace and defense industry, the key to staying at the forefront lies in groundbreaking collaborations and cutting-edge solutions. At North Star Imaging (NSI), we’re proud of our enduring collaboration with Lockheed Martin, a partnership that spans over two decades.
“Most recently, the companies have joined together to develop a high-energy, 9-million-electron-volts (MeV) CT 3D/4D scan system – the first breakthrough technology of its kind on the southeastern U.S., just off the Space Coast in Orlando, Florida.”
This system can scan larger and more dense parts than ever before, enabling engineers to see the unseen sooner.
“We have already seen a substantial achievement in cost reduction and an increase in throughput for customers regarding complex geometry castings of advanced alloys in the F-35 Electro Optical Targeting System (EOTS), hypersonics products and additively manufactured parts.”
The impact is evident in real-world solutions. From reducing F-35 EOTS Azimuth Gimbal Housing costs to improving Javelin launch tube structures, high energy CT & X-ray technology plays a pivotal role.
“These examples of how our engineers are using high-energy CT are just a few of the many ways we’re utilizing this powerful 3D/4D X-ray technology to keep our customers Ahead of Ready”
Lockheed Martin’s commitment to innovation is evident and our partnership remains integral, promising to unlock new possibilities and shape the future of aerospace and defense.
