Concurrent Technologies Corporation to Highlight Award-Winning Innovations at Sea-Air-Space Exposition

JOHNSTOWN, Pa., May 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) will demonstrate its award-winning innovations and advanced capabilities at the 2016 Sea-Air-Space Exposition. Held May 16–18 at the Gaylord National Convention Center in National Harbor, MD, Sea-Air-Space relays the most current information and technology relevant to maritime policy to thousands of attendees.

More than 200 dynamic, innovative and sophisticated defense and maritime organizations display their capabilities to attendees from the U.S. defense industrial base and private-sector U.S. companies, in addition to key military decision makers. This innovative, educational, professional and maritime based event has been held for over 50 years.
"Sea-Air-Space is the largest maritime expo in the United States and offers CTC the opportunity to showcase our projects and programs to clients, partners, and decision makers," said Tim Tibbits, CTC Executive Director, Corporate Business Development Operations. "Our solutions focus on reducing costs, saving manpower, improving working conditions, and increasing the capabilities of the U.S. Navy, as well as other services and government agencies."
In booth 1638, CTC will demonstrate technologies that drive down the cost of acquiring and maintaining naval air and sea platforms while enhancing capabilities. Such innovations include, but are not limited to:

  • Additive Manufacturing (AM) – CTC provides solutions in areas that advance the AM industry, such as prototype and part manufacturing, performance/mechanical testing, equipment selection and transition, non-destructive inspection for electron-beam AM of titanium, and much more.
  • Laser Coatings Removal System – CTC's laser coatings removal system was recognized with a 2013 Gold Edison Award for innovation in material science. The system replaces costly, time consuming removal processes that generate large amounts of hazardous waste and air emissions. The laser can selectively remove coatings, and a custom HEPA system safely collects debris as it is removed from the aircraft, minimizing its impact on the environment.
  • Carriage, Stream, Tow and Recovery System (CSTRS) Aerial Deployment of Unmanned Underwater Vehicles – The CSTRS enables the U.S. Navy's new littoral combat ships to readily respond to mine threats. CTC is now exploring the use of CSTRS for the aerial deployment of unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV). This new technology provides the Navy with a cost-effective, quickly-deployable, crew- and ship-safe answer for the expanded use of UUV in combat and operational settings.
