  • Department of Defense Environmental Security Technology Certification Program

  • Department of Defense Joint Group on Pollution Prevention

  • Department of Defense Propulsion Environmental Working Group


Hcat program

HCAT Program

OBJECTIVE:

Conduct research/development or demonstration/validation on advanced surface engineering technologies that will eliminate or mitigate environmental problems while improving materials performance that will lead to reduced life-cycle costs in military weapons systems

  • HVOF thermal spray coatings to replace hard chrome plating on external surfaces (approx.80% of total workload)

  • Plasma spraying using miniature guns for replacement of hard chrome plating on internal surfaces

  • Electrospark deposition for localized repair of coatings or non-coated components

    New proposals being generated to respond to DOD needs


Hcat projects

HCAT Projects

Landing Gear:

  • ESTCP funding ended in FY02

  • Cost and Performance Report completed and submitted to ESTCP Program Office (approx. 30-page document summarizing materials and component testing plus cost/benefit analysis)

  • Air Force making major commitment to implement HVOF at Ogden ALC for chrome replacement

  • Navy flight testing and Lockheed-Martin rig testing on P3 should lead to chrome replacement on Navy land-based aircraft

  • Canadian and U.S. LG OEMs moving towards implementing HVOF

  • Issuance of two AMS specs on powder and deposition


Hcat projects1

HCAT Projects

Propeller Hubs:

  • ESTCP funding ended in FY02

  • Cost and Performance Report completed and submitted to ESTCP Program Office (approx. 30-page document summarizing materials and component testing plus cost/benefit analysis)

  • Materials and rig test favorable; engine test in progress and looks favorable; six-month flight test scheduled

  • Anticipate putting HVOF into production on components at NADEP-CP and Warner-Robins ALC


Hcat projects2

HCAT Projects

Gas Turbine Engines:

  • ESTCP funding through end of FY03

  • Materials testing to be completed by end of calendar 2003

  • Successful TF33 accelerated engine test completed with HVOF WC/17Co-coated components

  • Oklahoma City ALC moving towards implementing HVOF into production on all engines

  • NADEP-JAX has HVOF in production on TF34


Hcat projects3

HCAT Projects

Hydraulic Actuators:

  • ESTCP funding in FY03 and FY04

  • Component testing in progress at NAVAIR Pax River; Navy moving towards qualifying HVOF coatings on actuator components

  • AF cognizant activity conducted survey of all chrome-plated actuators; initiated delta qualification on selected actuator systems

  • Materials testing (Joint Test Protocol) to support component testing still being finalized

  • Anticipate stakeholders meeting (DOD, OEMs, subcontractors) in summer 2003


Hcat projects4

HCAT Projects

Helicopter Dynamic Components:

  • ESTCP funding in FY04 and FY05 (zero in FY03)

  • Sikorsky and Boeing Philadelphia being put under contract to conduct assessment of chrome plating on HDC and define materials and component test requirements

  • Anticipate stakeholders meeting in Fall 2003

    Plasma Spraying on Internal Surfaces:

  • SERDP funding in FY04 (zero in FY03)

  • Coatings successfully deposited on inside surface of specially designed cylindrical specimen holder using miniature plasma spray guns

  • Materials testing in progress

  • Exploring transition opportunities to depots


Hcat projects5

HCAT Projects

Electrospark Deposition (ESD):

  • ESTCP funding in FY03, FY04, and FY05

  • ESD systems acquired and delivered to NADEP-North Island, Oklahoma City ALC, and Anniston Army Depot

  • Work in progress at Advanced Surfaces and Processes, NSWC Carderock, and Edison Welding Institute on repair of chrome plate and base materials
