Covington, KY (SPX) Jul 09, 2008
Valley Forge Aerospace has delivered to NASA its state-of-the-art components for project evaluation. Valley Forge provided to NASA specialized, prototype Attitude Control Instruments produced to NASA's precise engineering specifications.

Valley Forge, a prior winner of the NASA Director's Award for their composite rotors and space bearings, has substantial experience in the satellite momentum and bearings field. Typically, satellites contain from two to six momentum/reaction wheel assemblies.

Valley Forge's composite rotor is lighter, more stable, and less expensive than metal rotors currently in use. Composite wheel and bearing design allows smoother, faster and longer life than current designs resulting in significant improvements in satellite operational effectiveness.

Louis J. Brother, President and CEO of Valley Forge, said, "We're confident that NASA will be satisfied with the delivery and we expect our product to meet or exceed their expectations. We've provided NASA with a better designed, more lightweight product at a lower cost; we expect the results of their evaluation to be excellent."

Valley Forge Composite Technologies, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries are developers, manufacturers and worldwide distributors of next- generation detection and aerospace systems.

Valley Forge Detection Systems, Inc. is developing THOR LVX, an Advanced Explosives Detection System capable of penetrating all shielding to detect and identify explosives, nuclear material, narcotics and chemical and biological agents. It uses photonuclear gamma ray technology to identify substances at the molecular level. Expected markets include airports, seaports, cargo terminals and border crossings.

Valley Forge Imaging, Inc. offers the ODIN Personnel Screening System, which may be used in any market requiring personnel screening such as airports, schools, government buildings, sporting events, and passenger ferry terminals.

It allows screeners to detect items such as explosives, weapons, narcotics, gemstones, bundled currency and ingested items at a rate of approximately 720 persons per hour without the need to remove coats, shoes or personal belongings.

Valley Forge Aerospace, Inc. brings cutting-edge components and customized solutions to the aerospace industry such as specialized, prototype Attitude Control Instruments for NASA, built to meet NASA's precise engineering specifications.

Valley Forge Emerging Technologies, Inc. exists to develop and commercialize other unique and innovative technologies.
