NASA STTR Award Alert!
On June 30th, 2020, FormAlloy was awarded the company's first STTR through NASA. With New Mexico State University and Dr. Ehsan Dehghan Niri, the NASA STTR Phase I project will look to evaluate the potential development of data-driven modeling approaches, generated from real-time (in-situ) monitoring data, to make parts produced by the Directed Energy Deposition (DED) process defect-free. If successful, the modeling framework can substantially improve the quality of components produced by the DED technology.
Project Dates: 08/31/2020 to 09/30/2021
