27-28 August 2018
Jackson Center, Huntsville, AL

This Technical Interchange Meeting (TIM) will bring together leading experts from the propulsion community to discuss the most advanced technologies in additive manufacturing that are being applied to propulsion components. This forum will be conducive to collaboration and sharing ideas for recent advances and needs for future development. Additive manufacturing is enabling entirely new design approaches and is vital for reducing manufacturing time and cost. 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 comprehensively understand the area in order to proceed with implementation of the technology into spaceflight applications requiring a high level of reliability.

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 August 27-28, 2018, in Huntsville, Alabama at the Jackson Center. NASA and the propulsion community are committed to overcoming the challenges to widespread adoption of additive manufacturing into new propulsion systems. NASA, other agencies, industry and academia have realized unprecedented advances additive manufacturing research and technology development for materials, design, manufacturing, and certification. 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.
