“We anticipate good things to come from this partnership,” said Jim Glick, president of Transhield. “A synergistic approach to this market segment is an all-around win. Kennon has outstanding design capabilities and existing patterns for many military assets. The collaboration will allow us to increase product selection and expedite delivery of superior, state-of-the-art protection for fielded assets.”

Kennon’s president Ronald Kensey stated, “Kennon takes pride in engineering and fabricating safe, form-fitting covers to protect high value assets. We are excited to team with Transhield! Aviation customers, including the Department of Defense, will be able to purchase Kennon covers made from the extensively tested and well-proven corrosion inhibiting materials from Transhield.

Kennon aims is to change the way that military transport aircraft are thermally and acoustically insulated

Sheridan, Wyoming (WY)  (May 1, 2014) Kennon Products, U.S. manufacturer of engineered coverings, has been contracted to install Executive VIP Cabin Liners into the Presidential Greenside Fleet, HMX-1. Marine Helicopter Squadron One (HMX-1) is the United States Marine Corps helicopter squadron responsible for the transportation of the President of the United States, Vice President, Cabinet Members, Foreign Dignitaries, Press Corps and support staff.  HMX-1 is acquiring twelve new V-22 Osprey, a highly capable, highly flexible rotorcraft by Bell-Boeing.

The contract with Navy Aviation Systems Command (NAVAIR) is a SBIR (Small Business Innovation Business Research) Phase III contract that continues the company’s work performed under the SBIR Topic N06-016 “Attachment Device for Aircraft Blankets”.

Kennon aim is to change the way military transport aircraft are insulated, by replacing the commonly used “quilted blanket” insulation to a safer, precise fitting, sound-dampening cabin liner system, as will be installed on these 12 HMX-1 helicopters.

“Kennon’s aim is to offer engineered aircraft covers and other protective solutions to help protect our customers’ highest value assets,” said Ronald Kensey, president of Kennon Products, Inc.  “Kennon’s sound-dampening, insulating, flame-resistant cabin liner safely conceals electrical wires, hydraulics and other utilities.  It is precisely fitted to the internal curves of the aircraft, creating a safe, comfortable work-friendly cabin envelope for the passengers aboard.”  Kennon’s HMX-1 cabin liner installs easily using Kennon’s attach-and-lock system.  To view a case study of Kennon’s cabin liner for the Presidential Greenside Fleet, visit www.kennonproducts.com or join Kennon Products Inc on LinkedIn.

Founded in 1984, Kennon protects high value assets for the U.S. Military, commercial and private aviation, aerospace, original equipment manufacturers, health care, and energy clients across the globe. Kennon’s team of engineers, technical designers, and production experts employ advanced material and fabrics to produce superior, safer, custom covers, precisely fitted to last for the long-haul.  Kennon is well-known for its military aircraft covers, the Kennon Sunshield and its many aircraft, aerospace and industrial covers and solutions.  In addition to its ongoing collaborations with the U.S. military, the Office of Veteran’s Affairs, and Universities throughout the nation, Kennon actively engages in SBIR research and development, ensuring that it remains at the leading edge of materials science and manufacturing.

Kennon Receives SBIR Grant to Develop Lightweight Flotation Devices

Kennon Products is a receipt of an SBIR Phase II award to develop lightweight and compact survival life preservers and rafts for U.S. Navy aircraft. Kennon is working with advanced lightweight materials that derive from the competitive sailing world. The overarching objectives of this Phase II project are to develop methods to bond the non-traditional materials into inflatable forms, and then develop economical, high volume production processes.

Rafts on a military helicopter can weigh in excess of 100 pounds, and take up a person-sized volume of valuable storage space. The technologies Kennon is developing could reduce raft weights and storage volumes by half or more. For inflatable life preservers, current air bladders take up a lot of valuable space over an aviator’s chest area. Successful Kennon outcomes will eliminate up to 2/3 of this volume, providing extra room in a very important space for an aviator.

Kennon Products, located in Sheridan, Wyoming, designs and builds protective coverings and products to protect high value assets. In this case, succesful results will help provide protection and improve performance for some of America’s highest value assets – U.S. Navy aviators and sailors.
