Timetable: The timeline goal is to be operational in the new R&D Center in Sept 2023 with the intention to build out a SCIF by the end of 2024.
CFD’s R&D project needed commercial office space, an integration and testing lab, and a SCIF, which will provide space for technical innovation. The ability for CFD Research to execute larger contracts and gain more visibility with Ohio customers was also a priority.
Expanding our footprint in Ohio will allow CFD Research to perform classified work within our own facility. This facility will enhance CFD Research’s products, capabilities, and services for the local Dayton customer.

Ohio’s role as a leader in advanced manufacturing is more vital than ever as companies embrace new ways of making things with additive manufacturing, automation, advanced materials, and other new technologies.
Ohio’s manufacturing sector employs over 600,000 skilled individuals, the third-largest manufacturing workforce in the U.S.
Proximity to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and the region’s experienced defense workforce community were important advantages to bringing the expansion to Ohio.
