3D Systems, Airbus present first flight-ready satellite RF filter made using metal 3D printing

Additive manufacturing giant 3D Systems and Airbus Defense and Space have unveiled their latest joint achievement: a validated and flight-ready 3D printed radio frequency (RF) filter for satellites. The 3D printed RF filter is the first of its kind to pass testing and be qualified for use in commercial telecommunications satellites. Supported by the European Space Agency (ESA), the 3D printed RF filter project has been underway for some time, as 3D Systems and Airbus have been collaboratively working to establish direct metal printing (DMP) as a viable option for the aerospace sector. As 3D Systems explains in a […]
