Project Announcement: Lightweight Design for Ground Combat Vehicle Components – Phase II

The U.S. Army is partnering with industry and academia on a multi-phased initiative to evaluate materials that reduce weight without decreasing vehicle safety, with improvements that can be transferred to commercial applications such as personal and commercial vehicles.  Phase II will replicate the integration of a representative ground combat vehicle subsystem so that integration concerns can be studied, and solutions can be developed for dissimilar material joining.

To learn more about this initiative, contact Lisa Stobierski at lisas@ncms.org or call 734-995-5636.  We encourage the participation of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs), including Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) and Women’s Business Enterprises (WBEs).
