Our Work

banner-clients-for adjustments

MR&D’s fundamental technical capabilities include aircraft and air-vehicle systems and propulsion systems of tactical and intercept missiles. Our focus in both of these areas is extreme environment components (high temperature, high oxidation conditions, highly loaded). MR&D also has extensive experience with composite material designs for thermal management applications.

The matrix provided below lists core strengths, the systems on which MR&D has performed designs, and the customer for our work.
