What research, development, testing, and evaluation (RDT&E) is being done on ceramic additively manufactured (AM) gas engine turbine blades?

DSIAC reached out to subject matter experts (SMEs) working in the field of ceramic AM and generated a summary of RDT&E being done in this area, including specific application for gas engine turbine blades and air foils. Additionally, a literature research was conducted and a list of relevant reference documents was compiled from DTIC and open sources.
