2Phase Technologies has been awarded a $2.0 million follow-on contract from the US Army Aviation Applied Technology Directorate (AATD) for the development of Reconfigurable Tooling Systems.

“The technology developed through this Army funding will greatly improve on existing repair technologies, which in most cases are both time-consuming and costly,” said Dr. John Crowley, President and CEO of 2Phase. “2Phase’s breakthrough technology will permit aging or damaged rotorcraft to get back into service quickly, without excessive expense or compromises in repair quality.”

Dr. Crowley went on to say, “Senator Harry Reid was essential in securing this contract and should be congratulated for obtaining funding for work that will significantly enhance our country’s overall military preparedness while benefiting both Nevada’s economy and its educational opportunities.”

Sen. Reid responded, “”This contract will help make sure the Army can keep its equipment in top condition, and that will help the Army keep us all safer. I’m not surprised that a great idea like this would be developed in Nevada. 2Phase Technologies is a great example of our state’s ingenuity.””

Dr. Linda Clements, 2Phase’s Director of Materials R&D, explained more about the impact on Nevada. “During this final year of the project we plan to expand our Nevada staff further—creating more jobs in the Dayton area—involve more Nevada firms in the effort, and further increase our efforts at UNR and UNLV. In addition, as we commercialize the technology developed during this contract, we will require a significant commitment to manufacturing commercial systems, both at 2Phase’s facility in Mound House and by subcontracts to other Nevada companies.”

The repair systems in development make use of 2Phase Technologies’ patented state-change material to create integrated tooling and process repair equipment.
