  From the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics:
When and When Not to Accelerate Acquisitions
Frank Kendall

Ensuring a Safe Technological Revolution
William E. Frazier. Ph.D.; Elizabeth L. McMichael; Jennifer Wolk, Ph.D.; and Caroline Scheck

AM could radically change how the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Navy and their partners and allies develop, manufacture and support their platforms and systems.
The Digital Thread as the Key Enabler
Col. Keith Bearden, USAF

Digital engineering can help the Air Force refine engineering roles, improve technical information management and standardization and enable decision making of high quality with seamless communication.
Separating Hype from Reality
Raymond Langlais Jr., Nick Avdellas, Colin Finfrock, Russ Salley and Madelyn Newcomb

AM is evolving rapidly from its past use in prototyping into a computer-enhanced method of end-use production with great potential for the DoD.
Additive Manufacturing as a Sustainment Enabler
—An Industry Perspective

Marilyn Gaska, Ph.D., and Teresa Clement, Ph.D.

Recently sharpened awareness of AM’s potential as a sustainment and maintenance enabler has resulted in public-private partnerships.
Harnessing the Potential of Additive Manufacturing and Competition
Bill Decker

AM can enable the manufacturing of parts and components closer to the point of need for U.S. military forces.
Paradigm Shift
—AM and the New Way of War

Brett P. Conner

In order to realize AM’s potential, the DoD must actively pivot away from past acquisition, logistics, sustainment and contracting practices predicated on the centralization of manufacturing.
Metals Additive Manufacturing
—Great Promise in Mitigating Shortages but Some Risks Remain

Drew Miller, Ed Morris and Greg Colvin

AM is revolutionizing how parts are designed and produced, shrinking development and delivery times, and yielding improved performance at lower per unit cost.
Driving Innovation to Support the Warfighter
—Additive Manufacturing Initiatives Within the Defense Logistics Agency

Kelly Morris

AM can provide spare parts affordably where regular commercial production sources are diminishing, or when the parts are obsolete or conventionally have long lead times.

Getting AM Up to Speed Across the Army Life Cycle
Stacey L. Clark

The Army is interested in AM for point-of-use manufacturing, weight reduction, reduced payloads, multiple-use materials, and repairs.

Great Expectations
—AM in the Joint Advanced Manufacturing Region

Dan Green and Kristin Holzworth, Ph.D

The Naval Innovation Vision represented a bold plan. Execution was pushed to the deck-plate level. Individuals realized they needed to work together as a team.

Implications of AM for the Navy Supply Chain
CAPT Armen Kurdian, USN

Strategic deployment of AM machines throughout the supply chain, coupled with the right business model, is an imperative need if the Navy is to fully achieve the benefits of this technology.

Challenges of Enterprise-Wide AM for Air Force Sustainment
Debora Naguy

For high-tech aerospace components, AM is a cost-effective, tool-less production that can address many current Air Force supply chain challenges.

Collateral Damage
—Potential Unintended Consequences in Aerospace and Defense Industrial Base

Kenneth W. Sullivan, Ph.D., P.E; John Rice; Phil Farrington, Ph.D.; and Theodore Mayeshiba

The University of Alabama and the DAU examined potential AM impacts on the U.S. rocket propulsion industrial base to determine AM’s applicability to the aerospace and defense industry. .

Foundational Principles
—For a Successful Life-Cycle Product Support Strategy

Bill Kobren

Some fundamental truths regularly arise concerning long-term infrastructure—or weapons system—sustainment.
