Virtual Exhibition

Our virtual exhibition shows some examples of the Space Alliance competences in the fields Sensor Systems and Analytics, Sensor and Launcher Technologies, Optics and Materials and Processes.

The examples you find on this page are chosen exhibits which you can often find at our Fraunhofer Space booth at several different conferences and exhibitions. If you want to have a closer look at our exhibits, visit us at the events we are attending this year.

Additive manufacturing

  • programmable materials can perform system functions through their internal design
  • additive manufacturing (AM) is a key enabler
  • AM structure design enables desirable properties like stiffness variation or auxetic behaviour during elastic, reversible deformation
  • nickel-titanium alloy provides superelastic behaviour
