The first affiliate company founded by Catalyze Dallas in 2016, Metro Aerospace, holds the perpetual global license to manufacture and supply Microvanes, a technology invented and patented by Lockheed Martin. By partnering with Catalyze Dallas, Lockheed met their customer’s demand by greatly accelerating the speed-to-market for Microvanes while offloading the onerous and expensive task of obtaining FAA approval for the Microvanes onto Metro Aerospace.
Using their proven turn-key commercialization methodology, Catalyze Dallas grew Metro Aerospace into a mature thriving business, taking innovative technology that was sidelined and rapidly proliferating it across multiple commercial markets.

Alpine Advanced Materials
Alpine Advanced Materials holds a perpetual exclusive global license for HX5, a class-leading thermoplastic nanocomposite developed by Lockheed Martin Skunk Works® over eight years and $50 million in research and development. Alpine is the second affiliate company founded by Catalyze Dallas to commercialize Lockheed Martin intellectual property.
By partnering with Catalyze and leveraging its resources and access to growth capital, Lockheed Martin accelerated their intellectual property to commercial markets while simultaneously proliferating it across its own business units. Alpine is enabling markets outside of defense such as commercial aerospace, space, energy, and land transportation to benefit from innovative defense-oriented technology that traditionally would not see the light of day.
Alpine secures the exclusive global license for HX5, a class-leading thermoplastic nanocomposite developed by Lockheed Martin Skunk Works®.
Alpine Advanced Materials is Launched
Utilizing its proven turn-key commercialization methodology, Catalyze assembled a world-class leadership team, built a robust custom parts design, engineering, and manufacturing capability.
Following the launch of Alpine at the 2019 Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg Germany, Alpine was inundated with RFQ’s and actively engaged with multiple OEMs designing custom HX5 injection molded parts for aerospace interior seats, inflight entertainment systems, and galleys with the goal of removing 750kg of weight from commercial air carriers.
Production of Parts
Alpine will begin production on its first commercial aerospace parts within 7 months of licensing the technology.
