VX Aerospace was awarded a third Delivery Order, under its prime contract with the Naval Air Systems Command, to reverse-engineer and manufacture metal Ramp Floorboard Panels for the Marine Corps H-46 helicopter.
The existing Ramp Floorboard Panels are subject to repeated wear and tear during loading and unloading operations. The panels degrade over time, and the repair costs and repair times have increased dramatically.
