An American Metalcasting Consortium research project is focused on using 3D printed sand molding for the production of complex, metal-ceramic composite casings. This gives the designer significantly more freedom than conventional green sand or bonded sand molding.
Teledyne FLIR, a nontraditional defense contractor and Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD) Consortium member, was awarded a contract to develop the first mass-wearable chemical detector for the armed forces.
The Information Warfare Research Project (IWRP) Consortium is celebrating three years of collaboration to identify information warfare challenges, develop prototype technologies and ultimately deliver capabilities that mitigate information warfare threats.
Members of the Aviation and Missile Technology Consortium (AMTC) are developing a payload hosted on small satellites for the U.S. Army, which will provide more effective sensor-to-soldier data transmission in the field.
The National Spectrum Consortium recently teamed up with the Progressive Policy Institute (PPI) to research the impact of the 5G revolution to create millions of jobs over the next 15 years. The research paper reviewed three time periods of wireless-driven job growth in the U.S., and reviews job creation, industries affected, and job location.
This June, the Navy Surface Technology and Innovation Consortium (NSTIC) celebrates two years of supporting the Navy by providing access to innovative technologies that address current and future threats in the surface and maritime environment.
The Undersea Technology Innovation Consortium (UTIC) is celebrating three years of supporting the Navy this June. UTIC has built a national community to advance and accelerate undersea and maritime technology innovation.
