CCT was award­ed the Small Busi­ness Inno­v­a­tive Research Grant for “Ter­mi­nal­ly Guid­ed Robots and Robot­ic Appli­ca­tions in Con­fined Spaces”. CCT worked with four oth­er U.S. com­pa­nies to lead the research on devel­op­ing robot­ic meth­ods for machin­ing of the F‑35 Joint Strike Fighter.

CCT suc­cess­ful­ly engi­neered, devel­oped and man­u­fac­tured a low thrust PCD drill to use on the end of a robot­ic arm to drill holes in the inlet air duct of the F‑35 Joint Strike Fight­er for the Unit­ed Stat­ed Depart­ment of Defense.
