Who are points-of-contacts for additive manufacturing research, development, test, and evaluation in the DoD?
DSIAC contacted additive manufacturing (AM) subject matter experts (SMEs) that have been either at the forefront of AM research, development, test, and evaluation (RDT&E) and integration of that technology for their Service or that had actively supported development of DoD and/or Service AM roadmaps. DSIAC worked through the SMEs their Chief Scientist, and/or their Director to locate the appropriate Government SMEs from each Service that could provide briefings on new technologies, investments, roadmaps, etc. and perform introductions between the AM RDT&E groups and the inquirer. Additionally, we provided materials related to the AM roadmaps and state-of-the-art in AM.
