T3B is a small consulting company that specializes in concept development including rapid prototyping and testing. Its CEO, Roy Haggard was cofounder and CEO of Vertigo, Inc., a small business that grew to a staff of 50. Vertigo was acquired by HDT Global after nearly 25 years of successful design, proof of principle, rapid prototyping and testing. We covered a broad technology spectrum including ultra lightweight aircraft, parachute recovery systems for Unmanned Aircraft, munitions testing, ejection seats and general aviation aircraft. We became specialists in high strength pneumatic structures that have found use in Rapid Deployment Shelters for the US Army as well as exo-atmospheric decelerators for NASA. Other space based missions included the recovery of the Genesis and Stardust Sample Return Capsules, and the aerial testing of the Phoenix Mars Lander’s radar landing array.
This broad range of activity has honed T3B’s skill set for solving difficult problems both in design and in providing an “Outside Review” capability that has identified issues and flaws prior to implementation... Roy's Story
