Congratulations to our U.S. partner, CisLunar Industries!

CisLunar have beeen awarded a NASA – National Aeronautics and Space Administration SBIR Phase 2 grant for the development of their “Micro Space Foundry for On-Orbit Recycling and Metal Materials Production – Subtopic: Development of Advanced Joining Technologies, Large-Scale Additive Manufacturing Processes, and Metal Recycling Technologies for On-Orbit Manufacturing”.

This follows the joint work we performed last year with Nanoracks LLC, Astroscale, Colorado School of Mines demonstrating that the Neumann Space propulsion system can use in-space recycled metal as fuel. Sustainability is critical for the responsible use of Space. Collaborating on projects such as the CisLunar Industries Micro Space Foundry that can be used in a variety of applications, including to recycle debris and satellites for metal propellants and for on-orbit servicing, assembly, and manufacturing (OSAM), is a way Neumann Space is contributing to the future. Congrats Gary Calnan, CFA, Joseph Pawelski, Lee Steinke, MS, MBA, PG – We look forward to continuing to work together on this topic.
