The National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) is proud to work with the Army Research Lab (ARL) and the Advanced Manufacturing Materials and Processes (AMMP) to advance and enable additive manufacturing to create next-generation manufacturing breakthroughs. AMMP will respond to requirements for affordable, complex parts that currently cannot be readily built.

Our focus is to enable the United States industrial base with:

  • Unprecedented speed in part production
  • Novel weapon system designs and materials
  • Dramatic cuts in cost and delivery times
  • Point-of-need part manufacturing
