Our industry isn't always all about flying to exotic locations for a vacation by commercial plane, cool new military jets, or space ships going to Mars. Hitemco also plays a part in keeping rotor craft flying, and rotor craft also share an critical part in our lives wether we know it or not. From private, to commercial, to military platforms, in both visible and hidden missions, rotor craft effect our comfort zone decisions around the risks we take from mountain climbing to fishing. One very important Helicopter rescue mission can be seen here.
"Engineers at Lockheed Martin’s Skunk Works® are working on the successor to the SR-71 Blackbird retired in 1998. With a top speed of Mach 6, or six times the speed of sound, the SR-72 will be twice as fast as its predecessor. An optionally piloted hypersonic aircraft, the SR-72 will have long range strike and reconnaissance capabilities. Lockheed Martin announced the project in 2013, and has been working on technologies for the plane for over a decade."

For most of our long history, to the external world we have been a pretty quiet company. Internally, things are very loud and lively. We solve problems. Lots of problems. Materials problems, automation problems, supply chain problems, IT problems, and on and on. Our shift to a new web platform allows us to keep our site fresh and also gives us the chance to share some of our thinking with you with our new blog tab . We will share what technical developments we are watching, industry trends, business concepts, innovative materials that might be of interest, what we are working on, notable things that our customers or partners are involved in, and occasional random stuff we just think is cool, amusing, or important.
We hope that you will follow us (RSS feed), give us some feedback, share with friends, and send us some ideas that you want us to research or write about.
