NLign Receives 2016 Defense Manufacturing Technology Achievement Award


NLign Analytics, a division of Etegent Technologies, today announced that it has received the prestigious Defense Manufacturing Technology Achievement Award from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). The award honors individuals responsible for outstanding technical accomplishments that further the vision of the Department of Defense Manufacturing Technology (ManTech) Program. The Joint Defense Manufacturing Technology Panel (JDMTP) presented the award to NLign Analytics and its partner Northrup Grumman at the 2016 Defense Manufacturing Conference in Denver, Co. in recognition for their efforts to reduce Material Review Board (MRB) labor hours on the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program. The two companies are working on an Air Force-sponsored project titled, “The Digital Thread for Material Review Board.”

The MRB engineering process addresses imperfections that occur during manufacturing of aerospace components. Based on the imperfections, engineers must decide if the components can be used as-is, repaired or scrapped.  Northrup Grumman used NLign Analytics’ patented 3D collection and visualization software to demonstrate a 33 percent reduction in MRB labor hours on the F-35 manufacturing line.

“The Defense Manufacturing Technology Achievement Award is a tremendous compliment to the teams at NLign Analytics and Northrup Grumman for their many hours of hard work on this project,” said Tom Sharp, principal of NLign Analytics. “This award is validation of our technology and its ability to make MRB processes more efficient, and we appreciate that our name is associated with the great organizations and projects that received this award in previous years.”
