Air Force to Use Computed Tomography to Ensure Quality Control for Additive Manufacturing Parts

Additive manufacturing (AM) has been a game-changing technology for rapid prototyping and production in many industries, enabling more components to be manufactured domestically. As the Air Force increases its need for producing hard-to-source parts via AM, it is essential to develop quality control processes to validate flight-critical components. To achieve this objective, NCMS has collaborated with the Air Force and Comet Technologies USA for a CTMA project. Titled Computed Tomography for Quality Control for Additive Manufacturing Parts, it began in September 2020 and is scheduled to wrap […]

Simulators to Improve Medical Equipment Maintenance and Sustainment Training

When service members’ lives are endangered during tactical operations, natural disasters, accidents, and medical emergencies, MEDEVAC personnel serve as a lifeline by providing care and transportation to treatment facilities. Increasingly, military forces operate over extended distances, requiring longer travel to medical centers for surgery or other procedures, which can put critical patients at risk. During transit by ground or air, MEDEVAC responders must maintain patients’ stability. As the well-established theory of the golden hour has shown, stabilizing major trauma patients within 60 minutes of […]
