The Department of Defense is exploring more cost-effective ways to provide Warfighters with the parts and supplies they need in hostile and austere operating environments. To further reduce production and storage costs, the US Government has invested a substantial amount of time and money into developing additive manufacturing, a potentially game-changing new technology that seeks to radically change the way that resources are produced and sustained within the Military logistics supply chain.
Additive Manufacturing, or 3D Printing, has the potential to provide the US Military with the ability to drastically reduce the maintenance and sustainment costs of equipment, improve overall mission readiness, decrease the amount of storage needed for spare parts, and deliver increased operational flexibility to Warfighters in the deployed environment. Providing the US Military with the ability to manufacture parts on-demand not only strengthens military units’ ability to become more self-sufficient, but it fundamentally transforms the defense industrial complex as we know it.
DSI’s Military Additive Manufacturing Summit, occurring on February 7th & 8th 2017, will focus on advancing the DoD's capacity to leverage 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing in order to deliver greater operational flexibility to Military Leaders and Warfighters in the deployed environment.
