Listed Australian additive manufacturing technology business Titomic (ASX: TTT) has announced Nathanael Miller as its new chief technology officer, following the aerospace engineer’s 13 years at the USA’s National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
Miller will be joining Titomic following a position as Aerospace Technologist at the NASA’s Langley, Virginia Mechanical Systems Branch.
“Nathanael’s many years of experience at NASA will provide Titomic a competitive advantage on future strategy on revenue opportunities in the fast-growing and fiercely competitive commercial space industry sector,” said Titomic CEO Jeff Lang in a statement.
“As the Chief Technology Officer for Titomic, Nathanael will join our dynamic executive team to lead our efforts in building digital manufacturing platforms to create a sustainable and important capability for not only Titomic, but for Australian future sovereign capability.”
Miller’s time at NASA included as Aerospace Technologist, founder of the agency’s Lab 77, and Chief Engineer for the Shields-1 cubesat.
Titomic uses a cold spray-based method it calls TKF to fuse metal particles, and was spun out of the CSIRO. Earlier this month it announced that its technology had created the world’s biggest titanium 3D printed drone, and this year it added Japan and Korea to its distribution network.
