Title: Rapid-Release Fasteners for Structural Components
Agency: DOD
Contract: FA8650-11-M-3118
Award Amount: $99,999.00
 

Abstract:

Cornerstone Research Group Inc. (CRG) proposes to design and demonstrate rapid-release fasteners, based on Veriflex, for application in structural components. In this Phase I effort, CRG proposes to further development rapid-release fasteners by design for increased strength and durability for structural applications and designs compatible with aircraft system integration requirements. The project will culminate with preparation for a Phase II prototype demonstration in a representative airframe environment with fabrication of a concept demonstration prototype. BENEFIT: Operational Benefits: (1) Low force and rapid-release/replace fasteners, (2) cost/weight savings benefits of unitized structure design, and (3) reduces maintenance turn-around time and integration weight. Commercial Applications: (1) Commercial and civil aviation aircraft structural fasteners, (2) underwater or outdoor fasteners to replace metal, and (3) industrial fasteners for adaptable workspace.
