Abstract

Following significant impacts from COVID-19, the demand for satellite telecommunications services is rebounding to its historical trajectory of strong growth. With this resurgence comes an increasing need to improve the performance and economy of telecommunications satellites.

Sending a vehicle into a geostationary orbit can cost as much as $20,000 per kilogram, and the typical service life is 10-15 years. As such, technologies are required that can boost performance; reduce cost, weight, and volume; and drive improvements across design and supply chain processes. One increasingly important technology driving aerospace innovation is additive manufacturing (AM). With greater design and manufacturing flexibility, AM offers compelling opportunities to revolutionize critical elements of the aerospace workflow.
