US Air Force integrates Senvol Database into HyperThought

November 7, 2017

Senvol has reported that the US Air Force recently licensed its Senvol Database for integration into HyperThought, the Air Force Research Laboratory’s (AFRL) premier enterprise software platform for Materials Research. HyperThought is a digital workspace and integration suite that allows AFRL researchers to record, share, access and manage data. The arrangement will put Additive Manufacturing data at the fingertips of nearly one thousand AFRL researchers.

Matthew Jacobsen, Materials & Manufacturing Directorate for AFRL, stated, “HyperThought is our answer to the demand for a single system for data creation, exchange, and consumption, eliminating the inefficiencies associated with traditional data management solutions. The Senvol Database is the de facto standard database for industrial Additive Manufacturing, so it’s a perfect addition to our growing suite of repositories that give researchers on demand access to the data they need.”

Jennifer Fielding, Technical Advisor at the Propulsion, Structures, and Manufacturing Enterprise Branch of AFRL added, “HyperThought is a powerful platform that’s used by our AFRL researchers every day, and Additive Manufacturing is a topic of great interest. We’re excited to have access to the Senvol Database within HyperThought.”
