Titomic signs a joint research agreement with Lockheed Martin & RMIT

 

  • As per the agreement, Titomic will produce metal samples for satellite components using TFK.
  • Lockheed Martin will approve and validate RMIT and Titomic’s satellite components.

Titomic Ltd., an Australian industrial additive manufacturing company, has reportedly entered a joint research and development agreement with RMIT University and Lockheed Martin Corp., a leading aerospace and defense firm.

As per the agreement, Titomic will produce high-performance metal samples for satellite components using its Titomic Kinetic Fusion (TFK) technology. It is to be noted that TFK is an industrial-scale additive manufacturing process which will apparently aid in reducing lead-time while developing the satellite components.

If sources are to be believed, Titomic’s participation in this joint venture will reportedly help in assessing the capabilities of both additive and traditional manufacturing methods for improving radiation shielding in satellites.

Jeff Lang, Titomic’s Managing Director, was reported saying that the company is thrilled to team up with RMIT as well as Lockheed Martin and the joint venture will be beneficial for all the businesses involved.

He added that the agreement will not only evaluate TFK’s capabilities for additively manufacturing satellite components but will also help in faster production with reduced lead-time as compared to traditional processes.

Milan Brandt, a professor at RMIT University, mentioned in a comment that the institute is looking forward to working with Lockheed Martin and Titomic in order to integrate advanced manufacturing process for protecting satellites from space radiation.

The combination of using highly-dense materials and additive manufacturing allows for improved radiation resistance as well as lowers lead times while producing new satellites, the professor claimed.

Lockheed Martin will approve and validate RMIT and Titomic’s satellite components produced using TFK, cited sources with relevant information. In fact, a successful validation from Lockheed Martin will also open potential commercial opportunities for Titomic in the space and defense sector.
