Product Design

At McCormick Stevenson, Product Design is in our blood. Our team offers deep and valuable technical expertise focused on two specific industry segments:

Armament Systems

  • Munitions & Missiles
  • Guns & Launchers

Defense Electronic Systems

  • Communications & Computers
  • Surveillance & Reconnaissance

We build virtual representations of complex products by employing the industry’s most advanced engineering and design tools including CREO and SolidWorks for 3D solid modeling, and the ANSYS analysis suite for product evaluation. Our thorough embrace of digital product definition forms the foundation of a Model-Based Systems Engineering process delivering value throughout the product lifecycle.

Staying Ahead of an Ever Changing Industry

McCormick Stevenson is a learning organization committed to continuous improvement. To keep abreast of aerospace and defense industry advances, our team eagerly embraces a leadership role by facilitating and supporting professional design and engineering organizations, including:

  • Our company founder, Noel McCormick, also founded the Florida PTC User Group in 1995, an organization that McCormick Stevenson continues to spearhead today.
  • McCormick Stevenson actively supports our local SolidWorks User Group through meeting sponsorship and hosting.
  • A key member of our staff also serves as an adjunct SolidWorks instructor at the University of South Florida.

Solid Models Form the Foundation of Virtual Prototyping

A detailed 3D CAD Model is at the center of our development approach and forms the framework for both communication and collaboration between engineering disciplines. McCormick Stevenson communicates critical interface requirements through disciplined use of control drawings driven by parametric 3D/CAD models. Our team helps control the boundaries between organizations and disciplines that so often result in miscommunication and error.
