COLUMBUS, OH, UNITED STATES, March 11, 2024 / — necoTECH showcased their Hot Patch on Demand (HOTPOD) rapid runway repair machine at the 3rd annual POST Field Experimentation in Hawai’i last week held by NDIA and USINDOPACOM. Hot Patch on Demand (HOTPOD) is an innovative, patented technology that stands out for its unique features. Initially developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), HOTPOD has gained recognition for its groundbreaking capabilities. It addresses the critical issue of impassible runways, which can be a significant obstacle to national security and render bases inoperative within seconds.

What truly sets HOTPOD apart is its rapid induction technology, heating asphalt to 300+ degrees in 5 minutes or less. This unparalleled efficiency enables bases to repair runways and pavement within minutes of incurring damage, a feat unmatched by any other technology. It has the ability to withstand extreme environmental pressure. In a successful test run of 100 fighter jet passes at 35,000 psi, HOTPOD demonstrated its exceptional durability and reliability.

Steve Flaherty, CEO of necoTECH, stated, “necoTECH’s showcase of HOTPOD at POST FX 2024 not only underscores our commitment to delivering cutting-edge infrastructure solutions for national security but also reinforces our position as leaders in sustainable innovation within the construction sector.”
