Researchers at Raytheon Missile Systems say they have already created nearly every component of a guided weapon using additive manufacturing, more commonly known as 3-D printing. With commercially available high-end equipment and specially modified versions of low-cost 3-D printers, company researchers have created nearly every component of a guided weapon using 3-D printing, including rocket engines, fins, parts for the guidance and control systems, and more.
Scientists and engineers at BAE Systems have lifted the lid on some futuristic technologies that could be incorporated in military and civil aircraft of 2040 or even earlier. Among the technologies discussed are self healing structures, ad-hoc 3D printing and transformer air structures
Few months ago Texas based Defense Distributed had an idea - to produce weapon accessories using new 3D printing technology. It started with 'printed...
