Lockheed Martin Pushes the Boundaries of AM with Satellite Fuel Tank Design

Lockheed Martin, a pioneer leveraging additive manufacturing technology, decided to push the boundaries once again, this time as part of design project to make more efficient use of space while increasing the satellite's payload. Because the process would require testing many assembly configurations and producing several prototype iterations to validate the various design changes, the Lockheed team was interested in alternative approaches to traditional manufacturing methods—particularly around the design and function of the satellite's giant fuel tanks.
