Air Force Awards CVD MesoScribe Two SBIR Contracts

CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y., (Business Wire) – April 30, 2019 - CVD Equipment Corporation (NASDAQ: CVV), announced today that its subsidiary, CVD MesoScribe Technologies Corporation, received two (2) Phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) awards from the US Air Force.

The first project award is related to the development of advanced temperature and heat flux sensors to support hypersonic flight system testing. During the project the Company’s proprietary MesoPlasma™ Direct Write printing technology will be used to fabricate sensors onto thermal protection system (TPS) materials including ceramic matrix composites (CMCs).

The second project award is related to the development of a material direct write printing system to deposit metallic and ceramic coatings for aeroengine applications that eliminates the need for part masking during deposition. This project will utilize CVD MesoScribe’s proprietary aperture system to produce high definition coatings with selectable spray widths to meet US Air Force 76PMGS qualification requirements.

“CVD MesoScribe looks forward to working with the Air Force to provide innovative products, sensing solutions, and materials deposition technologies” said Jeff Brogan, Director of Sales & Marketing. “Our Team is excited to support hypersonic materials development and expand our portfolio of instrumentation products. MesoPlasma™ Direct Write deposition technology provides new coating capabilities and cost reduction associated with certain gas turbine engine components.”

The United States Air Force SBIR program is a highly competitive program that encourages small businesses to engage in research and development that has the potential for commercialization and to support the Air Force military effort. The program enables teams to explore technological feasibility while providing the incentive to develop products for commercial and military use.

CVD MesoScribe specializes in materials processing using Direct Write MesoPlasma™ printing technology, an additive manufacturing process whereby materials are printed onto conformal components in precise patterns. The Company provides MesoPlasma™ printing services and products to its customers for use in aerospace, defense, and energy markets.

CVD MesoScribe Technologies Corporation is a subsidiary of CVD Materials Corporation which is a wholly owned subsidiary of CVD Equipment Corporation (NASDAQ: CVV). Its corporate office located in Central Islip, New York and a manufacturing facility is located in Huntington Beach, California.
