CRP Presents 3D Printed Space Applications at Smallsat Conference

CRP USA will exhibit solutions for the space industry manufactured using 3D printing and the Windform family of composite materials at the 2018 Small Satellite Conference taking place at Utah State University, Logan, US, on 4-9 August.

These will include a unique CubeSat designed both as a CubeSat and as a dispensing system for two smaller TubeSats.

CRP USA will demonstrate the effectiveness of additive manufacturing and use of Windform as a structural material for space applications such as smallsats, since most of the Windform composite materials have passed outgassing tests and are qualified for space applications.

The 32nd AIAA/USU Conference on Small Satellites will explore the new technologies, design methods, processes, operational constructs and activities that inform and secure the success of small satellite missions.
