Economical Deployment of a Low Maintenance Asynchronous Health Monitoring System via Smart Energy Harvesting Instrumentation

Rocket engines and related hardware undergo extensive propulsion testing before being accepted into service. Ground propulsion testing can incur unexpected schedule delays and cost overruns due to untimely maintenance, repair, or replacement of unique valves. Efforts for monitoring the operational condition of the test facility valves drove the development of a novel Valve Health Monitoring System (VHMS).

3D Printing in Space: The Next Frontier

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has a long term strategy for In-space Manufacturing which includes fabricating components and equipment on-demand for human missions to the Moon, Mars, and beyond. To support this strategy, NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) and Made in Space, Inc. have developed the 3D Printing In Zero-G Technology Demonstration for the International Space Station (ISS). The 3D Printing In Zero-G experiment (‘3D Print’) will be the first machine ever to perform 3D printing in space.

The Benefits of Model-Based Engineering - An Aerospace Perspective

The defense industry is focused on improving affordability. In aerospace, rising fuel costs and increasing competition for market share are driving the demand for on-board systems that deliver improved performance while using less energy. The industry is therefore looking at implementing improved product development processes. Among these is the more widespread use of a model based engineering approach.

3D Printing for Machine Design

Metals and plastics have long been used for machine parts. Their durability, strength, and reliability in machines that operate continuously for millions of cycles make them the standard in automated machinery. However, for these same reasons, the use of 3D printed parts has been questioned and not widely adopted by manufacturers. This view should be reconsidered as 3D printed components offer a lower cost means to produce prototype components and end use components for machinery.
