Past event: Military Additive Manufacturing 2024 Summit

The Largest Military, Aerospace, and Defense AM Event in North America

About MIL AM

The 8th Annual Military Additive Manufacturing Summit & Technology Showcase continues to be North America's premiere military, aerospace and defense 3D printing event featuring senior-level DoD acquisition priorities, international 3D printing initiatives, and innovative technological presentations on cutting-edge solutions being developed across the advanced manufacturing and 3dprnting industry.

Each iteration, this preeminent event provides an opportunity for military, government, academia and industry professionals alike to connect, collaborate, and develop a strategy toward implementing additive technologies to transform current capability and stay competitive across all warfighting domains.

Expand your horizons and attend for this unique chance to experience premiere networking opportunities and view a wide range of industry products and services that will impact the future global AM landscape!

Topics of Discussion at the 2024 Summit

  • Delivering Modernized Sustainment & Materiel Readiness to the Joint Force
  • Driving the Global Adoption & Integration of 3D Printing Technologies
  • Facilitating the Modernization of the Defense Industrial Base
  • Expanding and Accelerating the Production of Key DoD Systems and Munitions Through the Fielding of 3D Printing Technologies
  • Embracing the Integration of Additive Manufacturing onto Ships to Enhance Overall Warfighting Capabilities
  • Leveraging Advanced Manufacturing Technologies to Both Accelerate Change & Sustain Fleet Readiness
  • Confidently Enabling a Distributed, Cloud-Enabled Network of Printers

Why You Should Attend

The global 3D printing market size was valued at USD 16.75 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 23.3% from 2023 to 2030. The drive to adopt AM technologies has never been higher and additive manufacturing in DoD remains disruptive and critical to the future force. DSI’s 2024 MILAM Summit will offer attendees the opportunity to hear from senior leaders across military, allied partners, industry, and academia on how they are leveraging the potential of additive manufacturing (AM) to produce new and improved designs at lower costs, higher efficiency, and with less environmental impact.

Senior leaders from key military commands and defense agencies will offer attendees an update on how 3D printing technologies are aiding in building strong manufacturing partnerships and creating a resilient, advanced Defense Industrial Base. This event will also detail the military/industry partnership toward developing processes for sharing supplier-generated technical data and documenting successfully delivered AM parts and raw materials. Lastly, our forum offers a look into how U.S. COCOMs are looking to utilize 3D printing for increased Warfighter lethality.

Panel discussions at this Summit will center around many new, innovative ideas including: the global adoption and integration of 3D printing technologies, driving the modernization of the Defense Industrial Base, and utilizing advances in the additive manufacturing capabilities of critical solid propellants & energetics across the services.
