Repeatability Evaluation of Direct-Write Printing on Flexible and Three-Dimensional Geometries (GSFC IRAD)

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Direct-write manufacturing techniques will enable new detector assemblies that were not previously possible with traditional assembly processes. Five detector/circuit concepts will be manufactured using this technology to answer questions regarding repeatability. This effort focuses on evaluating the repeatability for direct-write manufacturing techniques on flexible and 3-dimensional surfaces. Direct-write manufacturing has the potential to reduce mass and volume for fabrication and assembly of advanced detector concepts by reducing trace widths down to 30 microns, printing on complex geometries, and allowing new detector concept production.

The objectives of this project are to build on FY17 findings from direct-write processes by printing applications requiring direct-write prinitng on 3D rigid surfaces, and to evaluate their performance once built.
