As human spaceflight pushes beyond Low Earth Orbit (LEO), resupply of consumables becomes a significant challenge.  One solution to this problem is In-Space Manufacturing (ISM), the capability to perform on-demand manufacturing and repair of consumables in an in-space environment.  ISM offers significant flexibility to missions as it allows for a high degree of tailorability and reduction in launch mass.  Leveraging advancements in fabrication, repair and recycling, ISM provides a highly sustainable and affordable solution to Exploration mission operations and logistics.  In this talk, advances in printed electronics and sensors, ranging from nanomaterial ink development and hands-free fabrication methodologies to devices will be presented.
