MTICR is a program developed by CCAT in support of the United States Air Force’s
(USAF) need for affordable manufacturability. Phase II of the program has CCAT
conducting applied research into machining of advanced materials, including refractory
metals/alloys (molybdenum, tungsten, tantalum, niobium, rhenium), polymer/organic
matrix composites, ceramics, and ceramic matrix composites.
CCAT desires to engage several US companies who machine any of the advanced materials listed above to develop or improve cost saving machining processes for these materials.
If a company is selected by CCAT, they have the opportunity to participate in a
MTICR project designed specifically for them and the US AFRL will pay for it.
