Services to the US Navy

Engineering & Testing

DTB has been providing services to the US Navy for over 70 years. In our testing facilities, we provide both straightforward MIL-STD testing, as well as testing to customized specifications. In some cases, these test programs can involve intricate design efforts to meet any customer requirement.

Our expert staff is qualified to perform engineering and re-engineering work, as well as environmental, dynamics, EMI/EMC, armament, ballistics, structural/fatigue, failure analysis, and conformance inspection projects – both as a prime contractor and in support of other primes.

In addition, we can build capable, reliable, and accurate test stands. The quality of each part is critical to the success of our Navy’s mission. Our vast range of test systems and test stands includes automated hydraulic pump and motor test stands, general-purpose component test stands, automated calibration test systems, fuel component test stands, and gearbox test stands – to name a few.

DTB has the facilities, personnel, and partnerships in place to support prototype development for the Navy. Many times, prototype development crosses over and is a subcomponent of a larger program in the realm of value engineering, reverse engineering, product enhancement, cost reduction, life extension, diminishing aircraft parts, and so forth. DTB has the expertise and suppliers capable of designing and fabricating precision parts for multiple applications within the land base, shipboard, and aerospace communities. Examples include the fabrication of EA-6B tail pipes and E-2C hydraulic actuators, as well as ejection seats and aircraft wing dollies for land base equipment.

Technical Services

DTB specializes in technical publications and logistics services for military aviation requirements. We have provided technical publication services directly to DoD agencies and commands, as well as prime contractors and subcontractors. Our roots are based on a contract that started in 1966 with the US Navy for technical manual development, which lasted for 16 years. Our growth over the years has allowed us to continue supporting all four service branches and various international organizations, including the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

We develop technical manuals consisting of illustrated parts catalogs, flight, overhaul, and maintenance manuals, wiring diagrams, flight checklists, all forms of completion manuals, and the development of supplemental type certificates (STCs) and instructions for continued airworthiness (ICAs).
