Grid Logic proposes to develop a solution for additively manufacturing and qualifying non-critical beryllium-replacement components using a material specified by Raytheon Missile Systems. The solution will be based on new additive manufacturing technology from Grid Logic that permits a wide range of metallic powders to be rapidly deposited and sintered to form near net shape parts. Grid Logics technologies provide heating control and process control capabilities that are significantly advanced relative to other additive technologies; overcoming problems with previous attempts to additively fabricate components with the advanced material to be used. The efforts primary objective would be to deliver a capability that can be transitioned to Raytheon Missile Systems and its suppliers for production of missile and Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle components. In addition, Grid Logic would incorporate the results of the development in its additive manufacturing system products. Grid Logic develops additive manufacturing systems for production of high-performance metallic components. It leverages its strong R&D capabilities to create turnkey manufacturing solutions for DOD and industrial manufacturers. Approved for Public Release | 16-MDA-8917 (15 November 16)
