Sebastian Harrelson, an electroplater in the 309th Commodities Maintenance Group, prepares to submerge the nose gear of an F-16 at Hill Air Force Base, Utah. The organization is overhauling an increasing number of landing gear components with a more eco-friendly coating because of a new process developed by Utah-based ES3 under the Air Force SBIR/STTR Program. The coating - made possible by the new application process - has been shown to provide better protection for components and is expected to yield significant savings over the environmental cleanup needed for traditional coatings.
