Auburn University Key Developments

Auburn University and NASA to Collaborate on Development of Wireless Sensor and Communication Technologies

A Space Act Agreement was signed between Auburn University and NASA on October 21, 2016 to collaborate on the development of wireless sensor and communication technologies. It is the second Space Act Agreement between the two organizations in the last 15 months. Auburn and NASA will leverage each other's resources to further advance the understanding of wireless technology that can ultimately be used in space and avionics applications, such as the testing of NASA's new Space Launch System rocket, or the SLS.

Auburn University and NASA Sign on Space Act Agreement on Additive Manufacturing

Auburn University and NASA have signed a Space Act Agreement. The signing ceremony was held during the university's forum on additive manufacturing, a process which makes use of 3-D printing to make a three-dimensional part or instrument, offering substantial technological advances and cost savings over traditional manufacturing methods. Auburn University and the City of Auburn Industrial Development Board had co-sponsored the forum. Additive manufacturing is a major advancement for the future direction for the nation's industries. The partnership with NASA is an excellent opportunity to engage and leverage each other's capabilities and expertise. Apart from focusing on additive manufacturing, the Space Act Agreement also advances STEM disciplines - science, technology, engineering and mathematics - by assuring involvement of students and teachers in NASA's missions and opportunities; investigate and develop technologies; and share facilities, capabilities and technical expertise. Additive manufacturing has been utilized by the Marshall Center to build and test rocket engine components and manufacture the first 3-D printed parts aboard the International Space Station. At present, these parts are being tested at Marshall.
