Advanced Design Wins NASA Contract
Under a contract with NASA, Advanced Design Consulting USA Inc. will collaborate with the agency’s Langley Research Center to develop a device to facilitate research in electron-beam free-form fabrication in microgravity, a process that will be used to create replacement components for isolated equipment from raw material in wire form. The Lansing, N.Y., company will provide a precision manipulation system with position and velocity control of the electron gun and substrate.
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
