Sponsored by Businesswire

CVD Equipment Corporation Company (NASDAQ: CVV),
announced today that its subsidiary, CVD MesoScribe Technologies
Corporation, received two (2) Phase I Small Business Innovation Research
(SBIR) awards from the US Air Force.

The first project award is related to the development of advanced
temperature and heat flux sensors to support hypersonic flight system
testing. During the project the Company’s proprietary MesoPlasma™ Direct
Write printing technology will be used to fabricate sensors onto thermal
protection system (TPS) materials including ceramic matrix composites

The second project award is related to the development of a material
direct write printing system to deposit metallic and ceramic coatings
for aeroengine applications that eliminates the need for part masking
during deposition. This project will utilize CVD MesoScribe’s
proprietary aperture system to produce high definition coatings with
selectable spray widths to meet US Air Force 76PMGS qualification

“CVD MesoScribe looks forward to working with the Air Force to provide
innovative products, sensing solutions, and materials deposition
technologies” said Jeff Brogan, Director of Sales & Marketing. “Our Team
is excited to support hypersonic materials development and expand our
portfolio of instrumentation products. MesoPlasma™ Direct Write
deposition technology provides new coating capabilities and cost
reduction associated with certain gas turbine engine components.”

The United States Air Force SBIR program is a highly competitive program
that encourages small businesses to engage in research and development
that has the potential for commercialization and to support the Air
Force military effort. The program enables teams to explore
technological feasibility while providing the incentive to develop
products for commercial and military use.

CVD MesoScribe specializes in materials processing using Direct Write
MesoPlasma™ printing technology, an additive manufacturing process
whereby materials are printed onto conformal components in precise
patterns. The Company provides MesoPlasma™ printing services and
products to its customers for use in aerospace, defense, and energy

CVD MesoScribe Technologies Corporation is a subsidiary of CVD Materials
Corporation which is a wholly owned subsidiary of CVD Equipment
Corporation (NASDAQ: CVV).
Its corporate office located in Central Islip, New York and a
manufacturing facility is located in Huntington Beach, California.
