The printed approach that Sciperio used in Phase I demonstrated that it is feasible to utilize direct printing to manufacture ignition bridges. The direct printed approach is a combination of printed electronics and 3D printing. The conductive materials were printed and the holder for the materials of interest was 3D printed and then filled. This is all done utilizing a single machine and therefore the eventual manufacturing of the bridges will provide an approach that reduces human touch. This is a cost saving factor but also a safety and consistency factor as well. The Phase II will focus on at least two specific fuse designs and then optimize the process for manufacturing utilizing the printing approach. The set goals are a more optimized process but also to transition this to a Phase III thus transitioning the technology for cost savings to the Army.
