DSI’s 5th Annual Military Additive Manufacturing Summit is designed as an educational “Town Hall” forum, where thought leaders & key policy-makers across military services, defense agencies, & civilian organizations can come together for actionable discussions & debate. This year’s Summit will focus on the latest innovations in 3D printing technologies & the push across the DoD to rapidly supply durable, effective equipment & parts to the Warfighter on the battlespace. Additive manufacturing methods are being quickly integrated across the Armed Services to increase the current level of capability, while reducing the cost of parts, in order to deliver greater operational flexibility to the Warfighter and further enhance the defense industrial base.

Topics of Discussion at the 2021 Summit:

– Driving DoD’s efforts to invest in AM to support modernization, material readiness & Warfighter capability

– Integrating additive manufacturing technologies Into the Army’s tactical, operational & organic industrial base to enable enhanced Soldier capability

– Utilizing 3D Printing to revolutionize aircraft maintenance & overall operations across the US Air Force

– Leveraging 3D printing to bolster materiel readiness across the US Air Force

– Providing an update on the AM Roadmap: Enhancing the America Makes Digital Storefront to better support DoD
