Military Additive Manufacturing Summit

This educational forum will engage The Department of Defense, Federal Government agencies, academia, and solution providers in a collaborative discussion that further explores the tremendous role that additive manufacturing will play within the US defense industry.

 

Topics for February 2017 Summit

  • Opportunities for Delivering Innovative and Responsive Additive Manufacturing Technology to Warfighters and DoD Components
  • Near-term Additive Manufacturing Initiatives to Create Self-Sufficient Repair and Maintenance Capabilities in Space
  • Leveraging Additive Manufacturing Technologies to Transform the Maintenance and Logistics Supply Chain
  • Reducing Storage, Waste, and the Need to Forecast Supply Chain Capacity in Advance
  • Leveraging Additive Manufacturing Technologies to Expedite the Development of Prototypes for Engineering and Design Purposes
  • Improving the Functionality of 3D Printed Parts and Equipment through Additive Manufacturing Capabilities
  • Near-term Acquisition and Research Focus Areas for Additive Manufacturing within the DoD Enterprise

 

At Our Summit You Will Have the Ability to

  • Gain Education & Insight:  Walk away with knowledge gained from our senior level speakers on some of the complex challenges facing the implementation of additive manufacturing technologies.
  • Build Partnerships: The agenda is designed to allow for ample networking opportunities and the ability to discover 3D printing technologies that support the optimization and increased efficiency of the military logistics supply chain and manufacturing base.
  • Influence:  Help foster ideas! Share your own insight and knowledge during our interactive sessions. All attendees are given the opportunity to address our speaker faculty with their questions or comments and will receive a pre-Summit questionnaire for precise questions and subject matters you would like our speakers to address.

 

Operating Guidance for Government Attendees

  • DSI’s Summit directly supports DoD, Military Services and federal priorities by providing a conduit for officials to efficiently reach audiences outside of their respective offices that directly impact their department’s mission success, at no charge to the government, and in an efficient expenditure of time.
  • DSI’s Summit will provide a forum to address and improve internal and external initiatives, meet with and hear from partner organizations, disseminate vital capability requirements to industry, increase visibility within the larger community, and generally support their mission.
  • This Summit is open and complimentary to all DoD and Federal employees and is considered an educational and training forum.

(Industry and academia members are charged a fee for admission)

This Summit is CLOSED TO PRESS / NO RECORDINGS

 

Why You Should Attend The Military Additive Manufacturing Summit

  • The Department of Defense is exploring innovative ways to provide Warfighters with the parts and supplies they need during an era of budget constraints, aging equipment, and growing international complexity. To further reduce acquisition and production costs, the US Government has invested a substantial amount of time, effort, and money into developing a potentially game-changing new industrial technology, known as additive manufacturing.
  • 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, it fundamentally transforms the defense industrial complex as we know it.
  • Join us for this year’s Military Additive Manufacturing Summit as we discuss the opportunities and challenges that the DoD faces as it expands the role of additive manufacturing within the defense industrial enterprise.
