U.S. Army leverages Elementum 3D technology for future readiness
Elementum 3D was recently awarded a Phase II SBIR contract with the U.S. Army Futures Command (AFC) to develop high-strength aluminum additive manufacturing (AM) for enhanced readiness. We are honored to support the AFC’s pursuit to expand critical capabilities with this work. A deeper dive into the Phase II work will be revealed in the October issue of Momentum.
The Army Futures Command purpose is to transform the Army to ensure war-winning preparedness. Its essential functions include future operational environment, research, concepts, experimentation, requirements and integration. The AFC impacts the modernization of long range precision fires, next generation combat vehicles, future vertical lifts, air and missile defense, and network and Soldier lethality.
Impacting other government agencies adoption of AM has been a highlight for Elementum 3D for over seven years.
