Burloak Technologies, a division of Samuel, Son & Co., Ltd, announced a five-year agreement to partner with MDA, one of Canada’s most successful technology companies, for developing and implementing additive manufacturing in space applications.

The partnership aims to collaborate on optimising the design and manufacturability of a range of antenna technologies. The joint efforts accomplished to date by MDA and Burloak have led to an increased acceptance of additively manufactured parts for the harsh space environment, an outcome that is expected to yield significant benefits to both partners.  

Speaking about the partnership, Mike Greenley, Chief Executive Officer of MDA says, “With challenging technological needs, it’s important that we find the right partner to help us fully leverage the potential of additive manufacturing in space applications. We’re confident Burloak Technologies is the ideal supplier to continue supporting our efforts. This collaboration is a perfect example of partnerships that MDA develops under its LaunchPad program.”

According to Colin Osborne, Samuel’s President and Chief Executive Officer, “Over the last two years we have worked closely with MDA’s Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue business to apply and evolve additive manufacturing to their product offerings. This collaboration has allowed us to optimize antenna designs in terms of size, mass and performance to create a new set of possibilities for the industry.”

Two years ago in July 2018, Burloak technologies had joined GE Additive’s Manufacturing Partner Network (MPN), an open and competitive marketplace to accelerate supply and demand for additive manufacturing.

MDA is an internationally recognized leader in space robotics, space sensors, satellite payloads, antennas and subsystems, surveillance and intelligence systems, defence and maritime systems, and geospatial radar imagery.

Additive manufacturing in space applications is a growing field of interest and Burloak Technologies with its end-to-end solutions will look to dominate the sector.
