Description from conference website:
The 7th Annual Military Additive Manufacturing Summit (MIL AM) & Technology Showcase is America’s premiere military, aerospace and defense 3D printing event featuring senior level government acquisition priorities & advanced technological presentations on cutting-edge innovations across the AM community.
Each year this preeminent event provides an opportunity for military, government & industry professionals alike to connect, collaborate, & develop a strategy toward implementing 3D technologies to transform current capability & stay competitive in the global arena. Expand your horizons and attend for this unique chance to pursue valuable networking opportunities and see a wide range of industry products and services that will impact the future of AM!
This event will focus on collaborations between larger & smaller industry partners on how to work to maximize the effectiveness of their respective advanced manufacturing products & solutions to help improve military operations & the overall industrial base here at home. Senior leaders from key Military commands & defense agencies will offer attendees their perspectives on how utilizing technologies such as the Digital Thread will accelerate the use of AM by connecting information to physical processes more effectively. This will aide the Warfighter in being able to rapidly identify the parts needed at the tactical edge. This event will also detail how the current administration, through the AM Forward Program, has made utilizing AM technologies from industry a priority and those collaborations will be vital toward reducing supply chain vulnerabilities & leveraging the full potential that they can provide.
Panel discussions at this Summit will center around many new, innovative ideas including: leveraging 3D printed satellites & spacecraft to help enhance overall US Space Force Operations, JAMWG Education and Workforce Development, the showcasing of Frontline additive projects/applications for the Warfighter, & structural Metal AM sustainment solutions for military operations.
