Navy to Enhance Capability Concept: AM Mini Sonobuoy

Everything you always wanted in a buoy…and less. The Navy is utilizing additive manufacturing technology to adapt emerging designs in transducer and battery technologies into miniaturized sonobuoy components. Using FDM and SLS technologies, these components will leverage fabrication advantages of high-performance additive manufacturing (AM) processes and materials. The ability to construct minibuoy containers aboard ships
