IAI Awarded U.S. Navy Contract to Develop Magnesium Alloys for Additive Manufacturing

ROCKVILLE, Md.—October 7, 2020Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Navy to develop a novel magnesium high-performance alloy for lightweight additive-manufactured (AM) structures and repairs on aircraft.

In this contract, IAI will develop an alloy with high strength, low density, high corrosion resistance, and improved process ability traits. To do this, IAI will use tools such as integrated computational materials engineering (ICME), AM, accelerated testing concepts, and data mining to accelerate the development and qualification of the alloy. The goal is to reduce lifecycle maintenance and costs for USN aircraft.

“IAI is proud to have been selected by the U.S. Navy to support its research related to magnesium alloy development,” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI.

Data from multiple data bases, sensor arrays, user interactions, and historical data sources will be fused using AI methodologies to provide new insights. IAI uses data fusion to support a wide range of use cases including looking for injury in service members, supporting worksite safety using robotic platforms, evaluating engine components for fatigue, and improving performance of transportation systems. Fused data is used to create unique visualizations in augmented reality overlays and virtual reality worlds to provide in-depth situational awareness.
