Cybernet Systems Corporation has been awarded a Phase I SBIR contract by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration titled "Feedback Sensors for Closed Loop Additive In-Space Manufacturing." This six month effort for NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center is to address their nee for an in-situ monitoring and development of in-process quality control for in-space manufacturing applications. 

Cybernet's proposed approach is an integrated precision scanning of the additive manufactured (AM) parts and feedback of that data back into AM layer by layer process control.  The goal is to augment Space Manufacturing AM process controls with verifiable feedback enabling improved process stability and part quality to significantly reduce the risk associated with complex AM parts, especially those with critical hidden internal geometries or other features not readily measured with non-destructive tests/measurements.
