Navy Innovators Focus On 3D Printing for the Fleet

Posted


(Chips) -- Nearly 200 engineers, scientists, and 3D printing practitioners discussed Navy applications for the fleet of additive manufacturing, often referred to as 3D printing, at the Naval Additive Manufacturing Technical Interchange at Naval Surface Warfare Center - Carderock from April 28 to 30. "This is not as far off as you think," said Vice Adm. Philip H. Cullom, deputy chief of Naval Operations for Fleet Readiness and Logistics, in his keynote address. "Soon there will be no physical tether to the supply chain." Fuller asked the group to explore the "judiciousness management of risk," taking aspects of both physical and digital risks into consideration while maintaining engineering expertise and technical excellence.

"We need to focus on those things that make progress," said Dr. Thomas Killion, director of technology, Office of Naval Research. Killion participated in the AM Vision panel, together with Vice Adm. David Dunaway, commander of Naval Air Systems Command, and Rear Adm. Bryant Fuller, deputy commander, Ship Design, Integration and Naval Engineering, Naval Sea Systems Command.
