There are several NASA applications that may benefit from the proposed technology development. These include channel wall liquid rocket combustors, advanced turbine blades, future scramjets, space optics. This project will support Space launch System (SLS) programs, primarily the RS-25 engines. It also has application to other engines such as J-2X, RL-10, and any large LOX/RP boost engine similar to F-1.
Potential non-NASA applications where Ormond has seen interest include ground based turbine generators, and nuclear reactor maintenance. Any application where materials are too difficult to machine the desired feature is a candidate. For example, ceramics, high strength metals, nickel alloys, and refractory metals.
