Are there any 3D-printing explosives material properties available or organizations involved in this research?

DSIAC was asked for publications and information relating to the material properties of additively manufactured (AM) explosives and organizations involved in such research. Literature searches in open sources as well as in the DTIC R&E Gateway for relevant publications was performed. DSIAC staff reached out to Department of Defense and academic institutions involved in related research for information and/or POCs. While not much research was found regarding material properties, publications and organizations involved in AM explosives was compiled and delivered to the inquirer.
