AMNOW Phase 1 focuses on developing and validating a prototype digital AM supply chain. Multiple U.S. Army component manufacturing projects will be conducted to demonstrate the benefits of a digitally connected AM supply chain. Ultimately, the creation and integration of the digital AM supply chain will enable the rapid transfer of manufacturing process information to be exchanged between the U.S. Army and its suppliers, to accelerate AM on-demand production of critical parts.
AMNOW is funded by the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC) Aviation & Missile Center under the newly formed U.S. Army Futures Command. The U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC) Aviation & Missile Center provides increased responsiveness to the nation’s Warfighters through aviation and missile capabilities and life cycle engineering solutions.
