Gilmour Space Technologies, an Australian launch services company based in Queensland, Australia, has partnered with Additive Manufacturing machine maker EOS, headquartered in Krailling, Germany, to aid in the company’s transition from R&D and prototyping, to launch and manufacturing.

The company is reported to be only months away from attempting Australia’s first sovereign orbital launch from the Bowen Orbital Spaceport in the northern part of the state. It also plans to increase its launch cadence in the coming years. The project is a part of the Australian Space Manufacturing Network and is funded by the Australian Government under the Modern Manufacturing Strategy.

“We are excited to work with EOS and Additive Australia to enhance the in-house manufacturing capability for our Australian-made orbital launch vehicles and satellites,” stated David Doyle, Program Manager for Launch Vehicles at Gilmour Space.

“It is really quite amazing to see the rapid innovation from organisations like Gilmour Space. Metal Additive Manufacturing allows for generative design and fast production, and now we are seeing the rules for developing space launch vehicles rewritten. We are thrilled to play a part of Gilmour Space’s ride to deliver satellites to low Earth Orbit,” Terrance Oh, Senior Vice President, EOS Asia Pacific commented.

Kevin Hazlehurst, Director at Additive Australia, added, “Through our partnership with EOS we are proud to have worked with the Gilmour Space team to establish their metal AM facility, and we look forward to supporting them in their transition from prototyping to manufacturing.”
