Quatro Composites has become a technology partner in manufacturing Insitu’s next generation autonomous unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).
“The Technical Development Center, located in Poway, CA, provided valuable input to Insitu’s engineering team, working with them to design their parts for composite fabrication on the next generation UAS due to release in second quarter of 2009,” said Karash Turpin, Vice President of Quatro’s Engineering Operations. “Insitu was able to take advantage of our specially designed and fabricated assembly and alignment tools, as well as our extensive experience and proprietary out-of autoclave manufacturing processes.”
