ADVANCED MATERIALS AND MANUFACTURINGINDUSTRY ACCELERATOR

Catapult Satellite Applications and its partners present the Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Industry Accelerator. Its aim is to offer new opportunities for industrial research by facilitating access to commercial space-based platforms in Low Earth Orbit.

THE CALL FOR PROPOSALS IS NOW CLOSED

FOCUS AREAS

We help you to make use of the space environment to accelerate research and development in the advanced materials and manufacturing industry.

In space, there is no gravity. This opens a window of opportunity for research and development of materials under different physical conditions.

Impacts of the Space Environment on Advanced Materials & Manufacturing:

  • No Buoyancy: In space, matters can be mixed evenly no matter their density due to the impaired phase separation process
  • No Sedimentation: Nothing pulls you down, which allows for more uniform growth of microstructures such as crystals.

BENEFITS OF MICROGRAVITY FOR YOUR R&D

Microgravity and the extreme conditions of space, such as high radiation levels, can help us solve the biggest challenges in the advanced materials and manufacturing industry.

This is how we can innovate in space:

  • Improved Formulation
    • Synthesising, Mixing & Emulsifying
    • Lyophilization
    • Polymerization
    • Flow Chemistry
    • Furnace Crystallization
  • Better Deposition
    • Electrodeposition
    • Laser Annealing
    • CVD
    • MBE
    • ALD
    • Spraying and Coating
  • Advanced Materials
    • Ceramics
    • Functional Coatings & Thin Film Systems
    • Graphene
    • Nanomaterials
    • Polymers & Fibres
    • Superalloys
