Sintavia LLC, based in Hollywood, Florida, USA, has been awarded a contract by the US Department of Defense for the development of additively manufactured hypersonic propulsion components.

The contract, part of the Growing Additive Manufacturing Maturity for Airbreathing Hypersonics (GAMMA-H) project, contracted through the S²MARTS OTA managed by National Security Technology Accelerator (NSTXL), was awarded in part to Sintavia to develop and prove the quality and operational processes needed to design and manufacture critical precision components needed for hypersonic flight.

By validating these processes specifically with respect to hypersonic propulsion components, Sintavia’s efforts under GAMMA-H are hoped to be suitable for use across the growing hypersonic industrial base. The contract is expected to run through 2025.

“The GAMMA-H award represents an important step forward in developing and formalising standard Additive Manufacturing processes that can be used across the industry for hypersonic production,” said Brian R Neff, Sintavia’s founder & CEO. “As the industry leader in this effort, Sintavia is uniquely positioned to work with the GAMMA-H project to successfully develop and validate these processes. We are grateful to the GAMMA-H team for their trust in Sintavia regarding this absolutely critical national security imperative.”

Announced in October 2023 with a budget of $106.7 million, the GAMMA-H project is a joint effort between the Office of Secretary of Defense ManTech and the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division. In addition to the direct GAMMA-H award, Sintavia supports several other efforts also funded by the GAMMA-H project.
