Composites Technology & Training Center

Composite materials — lightweight and stronger-than-steel materials — are increasingly favored by NASA, aerospace and the Department of Defense.

The RCBI Composites Technology & Training Center in Bridgeport provides the direction, advice, and access to resources to help manufacturers win this lucrative class of contract. At RCBI we’ve already forged strategic partnerships with  that are meant to spin off new relationships that will benefit manufacturers.

Partnership Between RCBI & NASA

NASAUnder the terms of a cooperative agreement and grant, RCBI operates a Center of Excellence for composites in support of NASA. Working directly with NASA engineers as well as local composites manufacturers, RCBI assists in the development of composites materials used for space flight vehicles.

This partnership with NASA is directly linked to RCBI’s core mission by inspiring students, equipping and invigorating the training environment, and infusing the West Virginia-area manufacturing sector with new opportunities for economic development.
