Wednesday, August 22, 2018

The National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS), based in Ann Arbor, MI, has reached an agreement with the United States Army Research Laboratory (ARL) in Aberdeen, MD to manage the Advanced Manufacturing, Materials, and Processes (AMMP) program.

The newly established AMMP, a collaboration of government, industry and academic partners, is intended to develop new solutions for design and cost reduction as well as delivery time for the U.S. Army. It is expected to reduce time to market, produce stronger and lighter parts, improve efficiency, reduce waste and create complex geometries and advanced materials. 

 The Army’s six modernization priorities, as articulated by Army leaders, include: long-range precision fire, A next-generation combat vehicle, future vertical-lift platforms, army network, air and missile defense capabilities and soldier lethality.
