After receiving a letter of intent from Donaldson Company, Cox & Company has selected Applied Composites Engineering (ACE) as their supplier for the composite parts for the V-22 Phase II Heated Inlet Components.
Because of the successful Phase I Proof of Concept non-heated inlets manufactured by ACE for Donaldson Company, ACE was the ideal teammate for Cox & Company for the Phase II heated inlet component project.
Cox & Company has repeatedly partnered with ACE for several large projects for more than 5 years, including heated inlets for the AgustaWestland ATAK 129 and the AW189. Nearly 200 composite components for proprietary heated inlets designed by Cox & Company have been successfully delivered by ACE during this time.
