Additive manufacturing is evolving rapidly and many major militaries and many defence equipment companies are now exploring their options with the technology. We explore the market potential for 3D printing in defence and aerospace manufacturing and some of the key projects already in development.

Also in the next issue, we take a look at Poland’s massive defence modernisation plan, check out the UK MOD’s latest £66m project to fast-track military robotic projects to the frontline, and speak to Skylark Labs about its real-time drone surveillance tech for homeland security applications.

Plus, we speak to Airbus about its involvement in the brand new Space Hub at this year’s DSEI, find out about the capabilities of Boeing’s Orca extra-large UUV in development for the US Navy, and take a look at the aircraft used in the Berlin Blockade to mark the 70th anniversary of its end.
