Case Study: Canard for Precision-Guided Rocket

Oct. 4, 2017
Sponsored by Metal Powder Industries Federation
Precision was key for this stainless steel powder metallurgy component used on the Talon, an add-on guidance and control package that transforms a legacy unguided rocket into a low-cost, precision-guided weapon. By using metal injection molding (MIM), a PM technology, this component's geometric complexity was achieved without extensive secondary processes. The conversion of the canard from a fully machined wrought component to MIM resulted in a cost savings of more than 65%.
