Air Force Phase II SBIR Award - Mechanically Locking Nut Plate Technology

We have officially been awarded our second Air Force SBIR PHASE II contract. Over the next 15 months, we will develop the first mechanically locking and self-aligning nut plate that is magnetically unlocked. The technology has the potential to provide for a highly reliable integration solution for assembly of structures on orbit  using  robotic manipulators.

Air Force Phase II SBIR Award - Fasteners

We have officially been awarded an Air Force SBIR PHASE II contract. Over the next 15 months, we will focus on the development and qualification of size No. 4-No. 10 mechanically locking, high vibration resistant fasteners for elimination of safety wire in missiles, satellites, space vehicles and robotic in-space assembly.

Air Force Phase I SBIR Award - Magnetically Actuated Nutplate

We have secured our second DoD contract by being awarded another Air Force SBIR Phase I. Our focus will be the development of a magnetically actuated, mechanically locking, and self-aligning nut plate for in-space assembly and maintenance.

Air Force Phase I SBIR Award - Fasteners

Enduralock has been awarded an Air Force Phase I SBIR grant for the miniaturization of the Silver Lock Fastener and is now on a Department of Defense contract.
