F-22 protege

A small US firm has been approved to produce composite parts for the Lockheed Martin/Boeing F-22 fighter, under a "mentor-protegé" programme initiated by the Pentagon. Philadelphia-based C A Spalding, has been qualified to produce forward-fuselage components using resin-transfer moulding (RTM). F-22 prime-contractor Lockheed Martin and Dow-UT, which is producing RTM parts for the F-22, worked with Spalding to develop the company's capability to produce components. Spalding employees received training at Lockheed Martin and Dow-UT.
