The US Navy currently has large expenses to make ship models by hand for EM testing. Bennett Aerospace proposes a novel manufacturing and fabrication technique to build and assemble models so that they can be easily disassembled and re-assembled. The cost savings will be significant. Bennett Aerospace with its research institution partner will conduct preliminary EM testing of the model proxy developed in Phase 1.
