Lunar Resources and the University of Alabama in Huntsville propose to adapt its novel space additive manufacturing technology to 3D print refractory metals and superalloys with ultra-high resolution for US Air Force applications on Earth. The technology will support current systems and future designs including hypersonic systems, space vehicles, UAVs, aircrafts and other systems which require high-temperature materials. The project involves modifying Lunar Resources in-space technology for terrestrial industrial applications and optimizing the power source and print head to perform ultra-efficient additive manufacturing on ultra-high temperature materials.
