For several years Third Wave Systems has been contributing to the F-35 to make it a stronger, faster fighter jet while helping suppliers meet their on-time deliveries.

Third Wave Systems software products have impacted the joint strike fighter by affordably delivering 20% improvements in machining time for turned parts and 35 percent for milling, all while increasing tool life. More than 50 aerospace suppliers for F-35 and F135, as well as the primary suppliers, are using Production Module and/or AdvantEdge for affordability, quality and delivery on machined metal components. Similar capabilities are currently in development for Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC) and Polymer Matrix Composites (PMC).
