Aurora Flight Sciences was awarded an $11,146,376 federal contract modification by the U.S. Office of Naval Research, Arlington, Virginia, for the design of the Autonomous Aerial Cargo I Utility System program.
Aurora Flight Sciences and Stratasys Deliver 3D Printed UAV in Record Time
Nov 9 15
Stratasys Ltd. announced that it has teamed with Aurora Flight Sciences to deliver, what is believed to be, the large, fast, and most complex 3D printed unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) ever produced. Unveiled for the first time at this week’s Dubai Airshow (Stand 206), the high-speed aircraft is built using lightweight Stratasys materials to achieve speeds in excess of 150mph. To realize the joint goal to design and develop an advanced 3D printed demonstration aircraft, the final UAV "which has a 3m (9ft.) wingspan and weighs only 15kg (33lb.) " leveraged 3D printing for 80% of its design and manufacture and is built on the expertise of Aurora Flight Sciences’ aerospace and Stratasys’ additive manufacturing. For Aurora, Stratasys’ additive manufacturing solutions provided the design-optimization to produce a stiff, lightweight structure without the common restrictions of traditional manufacturing methods. This also enabled the cost-effective development of a customized " or mission-specific vehicle " without the cost constraints of low-volume production.
