NASA has given a $5.2mn contract to Auburn University’s Samuel Ginn College of Engineering for Auburn’s National Centre for Additive Manufacturing Excellence, according to The Plainsman.

 

As part of the three-year contract, the expansion will allow the long-standing partnership between Auburn and NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Centre to proceed to build. Mike Ogles, director of NASA programmes in the College of Engineering, put to serve as project manager, commented: “ This contract is a giant leap toward making Alabama the go-to state for additive manufacturing. We look on to growing our partnership with NASA, industry and academia as we support the development of our nation's next rocket engines.”

 

It is anticipated that the contract will aim to improve additive manufacturing processes and practices in order to enhance the development of liquid-rocket engines.

 

Christopher Roberts, head of Auburn's Samuel Ginn College of Engineering, said: “ For decades, Auburn engineers have been instrumental in helping the U.S, attain its space-exploration goals. This new combination between NASA and our additive-manufacturing researchers will play a major role in building advanced rockets that will drive long-duration space flight, helping our nation achieve its vibrant vision for the future of space.”
