Cornerstone Research Group, located in Miamisburg, Ohio, is now under contract with the Missile Defense Agency to manufacture high temperature, carbon-carbon composite materials that enable advanced hypersonic technologies. This $7 million contract was made possible by provisions Congressman Mike Turner (OH-10) included in the FY 2020 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and in FY 2020 Defense Appropriations.

“Our community is at the forefront of providing the equipment necessary for the Department of Defense’s top national security programs, like hypersonics,” said Turner. “This contract between Cornerstone Research Group and the Missile Defense Agency will reduce costs, increase production, and enhance performance of maturing high-speed platforms required to counter emerging threats from our nation’s near-peer adversaries.  I will continue to advocate for funding for our national defense and continue to support our local businesses.”
