  1. 3D-Printed Lightweight Optics for Directed Energy Systems

    SBC: Optimax Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T009

    It is proposed that using additive manufacturing to fabricate a lightweight optic would result in a weight reduction of the optical system, since 3D-printing provides superior flexibility in the geometric design of the lightweight optic. In addition, the conventional approach to lightweight an optic requires machining of mechanically-hard optical substrates such as SiC, which is time-intensive an ...

  2. 3D-Printed Lightweight Optics for Directed Energy Systems

    SBC: Optimax Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T009

    A significant cost and processing time reduction is realized by replacing the difficult manufacturing and machining processes associated with ceramic substrates, such as Silicon Carbide (SiC) or siliconized-SiC, with additive manufacturing or three dimensional (3D) printing. Along with reducing cost and time, additive manufacturing extends the capabilities of lightweight optics to meet more deman ...
