Private Partner 1
Single wafer automated, electromechanical, charged particle beam system for private partner: designed to industry specifications, and delivered within budget and with a complexity equivalent to Ebeam 3D printer
NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) is working to create what it’s calling a “Commercial Infrastructure for Robotic Assembly and Services,” or CIRAS. A public-private partnership will form to develop technologies geared towards in-orbit manufacturing and assembly of large space structures that will further human and robotic space exploration. One of those partners will be COSM Advanced Manufacturing Systems, a research engineering and manufacturing company based in Massachusetts. Among its other areas of focus, metal 3D printing is a specialty of COSM, which has been chosen by NASA to design an electron beam system for CIRAS. COSM has already been working with the NASA Langley Research Center’s Electron Beam Freeform Fabrication (EBF3) program, which uses focused electron beams and a dual wire feed to manufacture metal structures from materials including titanium, aluminum and Inconel. Funding provided through Langley Research Center .
