Precision Build-to-Print Polycarbonate Capsule Loading Cover
Mantec Services Inc. partnered with the US Navy to build this capsule loading cover which was used for the Tomahawk missile program. This was a comprehensive build-to-print project which called upon Mantec's extensive project management, sourcing, and internal engineering skills.

Constructed of custom run polycarbonate, manufacturing required the use of advanced vacuum forming capabilities. Forming the polycarbonate dome was challenging and required a unique foam application and a wide variety of specialty sourced items. The finished thermoformed dome was subject to CMM measuring before assembly of foam, and consisted of machined parts that required passivation, anodizing, primer and painting. This project also required close technical consulting with Navy personnel and an onsite inspection by DCMA with a detailed CDRL requirement.
