Additive Manufacturing: R&D in DoD Operations

Additive manufacturing processes are being investigated not only as a means of improving warfighter readiness, but also to reduce massive logistics tails as well as improve the environmental footprint for repair and replacement of essential parts and components. This technical session covered several aspects of additive manufacturing to include both polymeric, metallic, and even hybrid approaches.
