Project Announcement: Additive Material Property Evaluation and Demonstration (AMPED)
The U.S. Army is partnering with industry and academia on an initiative to evaluate and transition knowledge of commercial metal AM airworthy technology and processes to additively design, develop, and certify hard to source parts for the Army aviation community. This initiative will create Additively Manufactured Technical Data (AMTD) for parts that meet U.S. Army requirements using the Ti6Al4V alloy and advanced AM printers. This effort will leverage modeling and simulation tools and commercial engineering best practices to determine the optimal material solutions, processes, and tools to make the overall AM process consistent, repeatable, and reliable.
