Sigma Labs Wins Phase III DARPA Contract with HoneywellMarch 1, 2017
Sigma Labs, Inc., a provider of quality assurance software under the PrintRite3D brand, has received a contract from Honeywell Aerospace as part of a previously announced award with the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) for Open Manufacturing (OM) Phase III. Phase I and II were completed in 2014 and 2016, respectively. The DARPA OM program's goal is to develop an Integrated Computational Material Engineering (ICME) framework to accurately predict the properties of metal components produced using additive manufacturing (AM). Phase III will run through mid-2018, with a total award value to Sigma Labs of approximately $0.4 million.
"We are very pleased to have once again been selected for a follow-on contract with Honeywell as part of its DARPA OM award," said Mark Cola, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sigma Labs. "Having successfully completed the Phase II piece of the program in 2016, we look forward to working with Honeywell and its team to further demonstrate how our PrintRite3D technology enables rapid manufacturing processes such as laser-based 3-D printing for precision metal components. Through this award, we will have the opportunity to demonstrate how our PrintRite3D software can be a key enabler for developing quality assurance standards for metal AM aerospace components."
DARPA created the Open Manufacturing program to lower the cost and speed the delivery of high-quality manufactured goods with predictable performance. Additional information can be found at darpa.mil/program/open-manufacturing.
