Project Announcement: Advanced Manufacturing to Increase Aircraft Functionality and Sustainability–Phase V

The US Air Force is partnering with industry and academia on a multi-phase CTMA initiative to improve the state of advanced materials, virtual prototyping, virtual visualization, advanced manufacturing, and simulated maintenance planning to conduct an all-aspect analysis and operational simulation of an aircraft kit that will temporarily modify an existing aircraft to have amphibious capabilities. Phase V is built on the successful work in Phase III and IV and utilizes digital engineering and simulation to develop the MC130J Amphibious Capability (MAC) Part B kit further.
