Additive manufacturing (AM) is augmenting the aerospace industry and the U.S. Defense Industrial Base (DIB) by enabling advanced part manufacturing through lightweight structures, advanced propulsion hardware and reducing development lead time. AM’s ability to support rapid iteration by printing, testing, and refining new designs makes it an invaluable tool for high-complexity components.

Ursa Major, an independent rocket propulsion provider based in Berthoud, CO, uses AM technology to build advanced aerospace components – primarily through laser powder bed fusion (LPBF). This innovative approach drives its business forward when building low-volume, high-complexity parts.
