Past event: Military Additive Manufacturing 2021 Summit

Our 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 3D printing technologies being developed & the push across the DoD to provide rapid equipment to the Warfighter on the battlefield. Additive manufacturing innovations are being utilized to increase the current level of capability and reduce the cost of parts, in order to deliver greater operational flexibility to the Warfighter and further enhance the defense industrial base.

Current Health and Safety Protocols

Topics Covered 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
  • USMC initiatives towards enhancing 3D printing capabilities in support of a more agile & resilient MAGTF
  • Utilizing additive manufacturing technologies at DLA to modernize the supply chain for the Warfighter
  • Leveraging 3D printing solutions across the DoD to produce medical materiel in response to COVID-19 equipment shortages

Why You Should Attend This Summit

Worldwide spending on 3D Printing is projected to reach over $22 Billion by 2022, with two-thirds of that spending being devoted to 3D printers and materials. Our 2021 MilAM 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.

This event will focus on collaborations with industry to leverage advanced manufacturing technologies for military operations. Military commands & defense agencies will have the opportunity to learn how to improve their supply chains at scale, increase the size, weight, & power (SWAP) of their platforms/weapons systems, & enable the Warfighter to efficiently replace parts in an efficient expenditure of time. Attendees at this event will have the chance to hear from senior leaders from across the services will explain their overall goals in using 3D printing capabilities to revolutionize materiel/combat readiness.

Discussions at this Summit will also focus on emerging topics in the additive manufacturing community to include; leveraging 3D printing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic & utilizing AM processes to enhance the durability & speed at, which military aircraft parts are delivered to the battlespace. Additionally, this forum will give those from military/government, industry & academia the chance to hear about current/future DoD efforts to maximize the benefits that advanced manufacturing methods can offer in helping the Warfighter to maintain a decisive edge in the era of Great Power Competition.
