  1. Tunable, Repeatable, Calcium Lanthanum Sulfide Ceramic Powder

    SBC: TDA RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N222116

    There is a critical need for a high purity commercial source of calcium lanthanum sulfide (CaL2S4; CLS).  Ceramics made from CLS have an unusually broad range of transmittance in the infrared (IR), as well as high mechanical strength and environmental durability.  For these reasons, CLS is an ideal material for IR windows used in applications such as multispectral imaging.  CLS ceramics are not ...

  4. AI/ML for Additive Manufacturing Defect Detection

    SBC: PC KRAUSE & ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: N222117

    Metal additive manufacturing (AM), particularly, laser powder-bed fusion (LPBF) has transformative potential to achieve geometric design freedom at low production volumes. However, porosity and localized defects remain a significant challenge to implementation in mission critical aerospace applications. While the quality of LPBF is now competitive with or surpasses castings for established materia ...

  8. Artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to detect defects in additive manufacturing by fusing multiple sensor data

    SBC: ADDIGURU, LLC            Topic: N222117

    While additive manufacturing (AM) has enabled the fabrication of complex geometries, process repeatability, and part quality has been an inhibitor to widespread industry adoption. Parts fabricated using metal AM can have their mechanical properties compromised due to the presence of defects. Presently, quality assurance is achieved by X-ray Computed Tomography (CT), which is costly and time-consum ...

  9. Defect Detection in Metal Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Product Innovation And Engineering, LLC            Topic: N222117

    In-process inspection offers a path forward to insuring components produced via metal additive manufacturing (AM) such as directed energy deposition (DED). However, a simple anomaly detection ML technique driven from observational data may be insufficient for tracking the performance of a system intended to produce arbitrary geometry. The methodology chosen for a defect monitoring system must be g ...

  10. PrintRite3D? AI/ML for In-Situ Additive Manufacturing Defect Detection

    SBC: KITWARE INC            Topic: N222117

    Additive manufacturing (AM) increases the speed and flexibility of production and enables traditional part concatenation for advanced manufacturing capabilities. The ability for U.S. manufacturers to 3D-print advanced components in-house reduces reliance on traditional subtractive supply chains and bolsters national security readiness. While AM affords unique flexibility in design for manufacturab ...
