NASA’s Technology Transfer Program solicits inquiries from companies interested in obtaining license rights to commercialize, manufacture and market the following technology. License rights may be issued on an exclusive or nonexclusive basis and may include specific fields of use.
NASA provides no funding in conjunction with these potential licenses.
THE TECHNOLOGY:
Researchers at NASA Langley Research Center have developed a much more reliable non-destructive evaluation method based on infrared thermography. The method provides transient temperature profiles of the surface, including the melt pool, at each step/layer. This system can measure material properties and detect defects during the additive manufacturing process. It will allow for characterization of the deposition quality and also detection of deposition defects such as voids, crack, and disbonds as the structure is manufactured layer by layer. The information, in the form of quantitative inspection images, can
