Authors: Barry J Kline
Date/Pages: September 2015; 22 pages
Abstract: Researchers at the US Army Research Laboratory's Guidance Technology Branch have demonstrated the ability to rapidly fabricate uniquely configured optical light pipes using stereolithography and postprocessing with an airbrush. This technique represents an improved option for transmitting optical status indicators from electronics inside a smart projectile to a location on the exterior of the projectile body.
