NASA’s 3D Printed sensor technology

Posted on Updated on

According to Mahmooda Sultana, Associate Branch Head, Systems Engineering Branch at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, “Mahmooda uses her love of math and puzzles to develop new technologies and miniaturize instruments for NASA missions. 3D printing allows technicians to print a suite of sensors on one platform, dramatically simplifying the integration and packaging process. These tiny platforms could be deployed on planetary rovers to detect small quantities of water and methane, for example, or be used as monitoring or biological sensors to maintain astronaut health and safety”.
