A Strategic Statement of Intent has been signed between Gilmour Space Technologies and Titomic Limited (ASX: TTT) in early October 2019, indicating the two Australian-based companies are planning to work together in producing components for orbital launch vehicles. The new materials and components being developed will utilise 3D-printing technology and improve the manufacturing efficiency and productivity of Gilmour's rocket program.
“Gilmour Space is developing new launch vehicles to support today’s global small satellite market, and this partnership could see us leveraging on Titomic's innovative manufacturing processes to produce lighter and stronger components for our orbital launch vehicles,” said the company’s co-founder and chief operating officer, James Gilmour.
“I am excited to get started on our joint tech-development program. Between the Gilmour Space focus on launch economics and the scale and quality performance of Titomic Kinetic Fusion capabilities, I am expecting significant implications for the launch vehicle community,” said Titomic’s chief technology officer, Nathanael Miller.
Gilmour Space is a private Australian rocket company that is developing new capabilities for launching small satellites into Low Earth Orbits. Founded by two brothers, this Queensland-based startup is now one of Australia’s leading space companies, pioneering new and innovative hybrid propulsion technologies.
