Government agencies are not known for moving quickly, and the Risk Management Framework (RMF) accreditation process is a prime example. For defense contractors and integrators tasked with developing new technologies for the Department of Defense (DoD) and other government agencies, this step alone can take nine to 12 months or longer.
The “CHaracterising ExOPlanets Satellite” (CHEOPS) – the first European Space Agency (ESA) scientific satellite to developed and manufactured in Spain – will launch in 2019 and spend at least three and a half years studying movements and characteristics of exoplanets that orbit nearby bright stars beyond the Solar System. However, without the development of additive manufacturing (AM) or “3D-printing,” CHEOPS would be too broad for integration into its Soyuz launch vehicle.
Ford Motor Company is investing $45 million in its new Advanced Manufacturing Center (AMC) in Redford Township, Michigan, to help quickly innovate and deploy scalable new manufacturing technologies. The new AMC co-locates approximately 100 manufacturing technology experts and their specialized equipment in one 100,000-ft2 space just east of Detroit.
EOS GmbH and Etihad Airways will partner to significantly expand local capabilities for industrial additive manufacturing – also known as 3D printing – in aviation. The partnership, announced at the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, will enable Etihad Airways Engineering to produce 3D-printed aircraft parts at their facility in Abu Dhabi.
The initial phase of this collaboration, which uses EOS technology with an EOS additive manufacturing system, will include the qualification of machine, process, and materials in accordance with aviation regulatory requirements.
