OSPREY TECHNOLOGIES, LLC

We are a design and analysis engineering firm specializing in composite structures. Our services include assistance with the design process, expert finite element analysis (FEA), guidance for cost-effective manufacturing approaches and processes, and fabrication of prototypes and low production runs. We utilize Solidworks software for our design work and perform finite element analysis using ANSYS and NX Nastran.

Composite engineering combines the use of carbon, glass, and Kevlar fibers with a wide variety of thermoset and thermoplastic matrix materials to produce stronger and lighter structural and/or functional properties not present in any individual component. Osprey’s composite experience goes beyond polymer matrix composites (PMCs) to include metal and ceramic matrix composites (MMC and CMC).

With our recent move to Northern Michigan we expanded our capabilities to meet local needs which include large custom 3D woodcarving and composite boat redesign and repair.


 

WHO WE HELP

Corporations

 

We perform composite design and analysis for a range of companies, from aerospace to aircraft, and companies that develop energy sources such as wind turbines.

Government Entities

 

Our clients support entities such as NASA and the Air Force in endeavors that include analyzing the primary structure joints for the Antares launch vehicle, and performing thermal-structural analysis of projects such as a cruise missile composite radome or a rocket engine’s combustion chamber.

Entrepreneurs

 

We assist entrepreneurs with design formulations based on needed strength, stiffness, weight, fabrication method, and tooling process guidance. We manufacture prototypes and small development runs.
