Design

Fulcrum’s design personnel specialize in quick reaction Special Missions, ISR platforms, and aircraft modifications to provide rapidly produced lightweight solutions with an emphasis on responsiveness to the customer and excellence in complex technical integrations. Many Fulcrum personnel served at large Defense Corporations as successful Directors, Program, and Engineering managers who are weapons system integration, airframe structural modification, and problem-solving experts. This extensive experience is leveraged to develop weight reduction efforts, weapons launchers, pod systems, wings, and custom weapons system integration for our customers’ specific platforms and mission profiles. Fulcrum designers have the added benefit of being collocated with operational users, which provides operational insight during the design process. That insight, coupled with comprehensive internal design reviews, reduces cost for our customers while providing highly capable and vetted solutions.
