Project Announcement: Innovative Carbon Fiber and Graphite Foam Solutions

The U.S. Army is partnering with industry and academia to demonstrate lightweight components that can reduce weight, improve efficiencies and reduce maintenance and sustainment costs. By using representative parts from the transportation industry, the initiative will demonstrate the feasibility to cost-effectively reduce overall vehicle weight and maintenance costs while increasing service life of vehicle components.

To learn more about this initiative, contact Tracy Briggs at tracyb@ncms.org or call 734-995-3492. We encourage participation of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs), including Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) and Women’s Business Enterprises (WBEs).
