This week, I welcome Matt Villarreal (CEO) of Infinite Composites Technologies on to discuss a new technology they've developed - the first ever, spherical all-composite carbon-fiber pressure vessel for storing cryogenic propellants for launch vehicles and spacecraft such as a lunar lander.
By providing the lowest mass and most cost-effective option to store fuel, ICT’s CryoSphere would affect the in-space capabilities of future missions, reduce the cost of launch vehicles to transport cargo to space, and increase the amount of payload to planetary surfaces.
This week I welcome David Nolletti on the show to discuss how this current pandemic will impact the aerospace and defense industries.
David Nolletti is the director at Conway MacKenzie, and is a manufacturing expert, particularly in aerospace and defense. Dave has substantial experience in aerospace, defense, distribution, consumer products, aerospace maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO), and general industrial verticals. His broad manufacturing experience includes precision machining, grinding, forging, casting, complex assembly, and kitting.
Today I have Greg Mark, CEO of Markforged joining me to share how their company is filling gaps in the medical supply shortage, and how 3D printing is becoming an effective option for fast production during times of crisis. 3D printing is emerging as a critical tool for preventing and flattening the curve of the coronavirus spread, arming healthcare providers with the tools they need to do their jobs.
