Engineering professor receives $425,000 grant to study prevention of sabotage within additive manufacturing
Sabotage attacks against 3D printed, additively manufactured components can possibly lead to disastrous mishaps with systems using these components, including but not limited to airplanes. Consequently, it could cause injuries, disrupt industrial production, or slow supply chains.
Mark Yampolskiy, assistant professor in computer science and software engineering at the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering, is working to develop systems that will:
Detect such attacks
Localize introduced deviations within the 3D printed parts, and
Reconstruct deviations for further investigation
