August 23-25, 2016
Jackson Center, Huntsville, AL

The Joint Army-Navy-NASA-Air Force (JANNAF) Liquid Propulsion Subcommittee (LPS) Advanced Materials Panel will host an Additive Manufacturing for Propulsion Applications TIM on Tuesday-Thursday, August 23-25, 2016, in Huntsville, Alabama at the Jackson Center. NASA has committed significant effort towards development of 3D Printing, Rapid Prototyping, and Additive Manufacturing technologies to accelerate testing of new propulsion designs, and ultimately qualifying them for use in flight applications.  This TIM is intended to share the results of these efforts, to encourage organizations with similar interests, and provide insight into the plans for future developments. 

This Technical Interchange Meeting (TIM) will bring the propulsion community together to discuss recent advances in Additive Manufacturing technology being applied to propulsion components.  This forum will be conducive to sharing ideas and needs for future development.  Additive manufacturing is critical for reducing manufacturing time and cost to manufacture components for propulsion systems. As affordability is becoming increasingly critical for space launch systems, new and innovative manufacturing techniques are becoming a mainstream approach to manufacturing. As additive manufacturing becomes more widely accepted for general use, it is necessary to understand the technology well enough to proceed with a high level of confidence.
