Talk Title: Fiber Optics Manufacturing in Space (FOMS): Live Payload Demo
Abstract: Photonics manufacturing is taking the first steps outside our planet. The sustainable orbital manufacturing with commercially viable and profitable operation has tremendous potential for driving the space exploration industry and human expansion into outer space. FOMS Inc. team identified an opportunity of revolutionary optical fiber manufacturing in space that leads to the first commercial production on orbit. This NASA and CASIS sponsored mission is driven by strong commercial potential for manufacturing operations on board the International Space Station. The emerging Space Fiber TM product line applications are discussed. The world's first actual orbital manufacturing payload prototype will be demonstrated.
