The objective was primarily to utilize the newly developed Air Force super-hard coating process technologies in practical applications, such as turbine engine rotor components, precision shafts and ball bearings, and bearing races. This would give the Air Force the capability of practically coating real precision mechanical parts with solid lubricant films of the highest toughness. These films would be of the highest hardness and the most resilient to damage, extending the life of high cost precision aircraft components. This is driven by the fact that the primary cost in producing aircraft components is the precision machining required.
