Authentise was awarded $573,710 to build a secure real-time measurement system specifically to detect if malicious third parties have infiltrated an Additive Manufacturing system to adjust or introduce defects, which would otherwise be undetectable during manufacture. Partnering with Addiguru, i3DMFG, and CyManII, this team will demonstrate multiple verification data streams based on the digital model build file, all integrated into the CyManII-developed Cyber-Physical Passport. This system not only looks to improve cyber security, but also aid AM manufacturers in their ability to improve manufacturing quality assurance approaches and workflows.
