Diminishing Aircraft Parts
Diminishing Aircraft Parts Research & Development Services
Given the ever-increasing complexity, development cost, and prototype-to-production lead time to produce new, multi-role joint service aircraft, government and commercial entities are exploring new ways to extend the lives of their aging aircraft and to expand their roles and mission profiles. Many of these aircraft, although still mission capable, are several decades old.
As the service lives of these aircraft are extended, the demand for the supply of spare parts to support them increases. At this point, many of the OEMs have either ceased production, merged with or have been absorbed by larger companies or competitors, or have simply gone out of business. The result is a critical shortage of spare and repair parts to support and sustain aging aircraft.
DTB has the experience and technical expertise to address government and commercial industry concerns about diminishing aircraft spare and repair parts by providing research, reverse engineering, and prototype development services for out-of-production aircraft parts and assemblies.
