Overview of On Demand Manufacturing of Electronics on the ISS
On Demand Manufacturing of Electronics (ODME) is a project that is part of NASA’s In Space Manufacturing suite of projects that is developing on-demand manufacturing capability for the International Space Station and beyond. These capabilities will include on demand manufacturing of metals, electronics, sensors, and the ability to reclaim and recycle for long-term sustainment. ODME is developing new materials and processes for additively manufacturing electronics and sensors in a microgravity environment. The new capabilities will allow NASA to replace and upgrade existing electronic components, and also upgrade systems and sensor networks with on-demand printing capabilities. This is an enabling capability for long-term habitation as well as long-range space missions.
