Defense and Space

hero-defense

Across air, land and sea, our defense innovations maximize speed, agility and survivability. Working in collaboration with every branch of the U.S. military and other defense partners, we create multi-material solutions that are lighter, faster, stronger and more cost effective.

In space, our material science and metallurgy helped put a man on the moon—with aluminum sheet and plate for Apollo 11. And our aluminum powder propelled the space shuttle. Today, we continue to advance space exploration with metal 3D printed parts for the Orion spacecraft and aluminum alloy panels for the Atlas V rocket.
