AFRC-CRAD-1130 Advanced Forming Technologies for Complex Shapes Spacecraft and Satellite Propellant Tanks

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

Various manufacturing methods and materials were explored for the production of satellite propellant tanks for the European Space Agency (ESA). The aim was to identify and prove a manufacturing process which is more efficient than the current one. The AFRC contributed by studying and testing alternative forming processes. TWI was also part of the consortium and investigated potential welding methods.
