    NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. (May 17, 2016) - Navy engineer Steve Price answers an attendee's question about the small additively manufactured modular payload multi-rotor at the 2016 Sea-Air-Space Expo. This low cost, 3D printed, unmanned aerial vehicle is rapidly adaptable to mission requirements and can accept a wide variety of custom payloads. The UAV was one of the exhibits featured at the Navy Additive Manufacturing Showcase in Dahlgren, Va., last month that were selected for display at the Sea-Air-Space Expo. "The volume of creative and innovative ideas made feasible with 3D Printing is astounding," said Lynn Shoppell, a Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division physicist after the Dahlgren showcase. "The exhibitors demonstrated that their concepts for increased technical capabilities, rapid prototyping, improved logistics operations, and cost reduction initiatives are achievable with 3D Printing. Participants also experimented with additive manufacturing technology research and development."
