3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) announced a partnership with the U.S. Army Research Laboratory to develop 3D printing technology and materials for applications at the Army’s Aberdeen Proving Ground.
According to the press release:

As part of this agreement, 3DS personnel will serve as guest researchers on-site at Aberdeen Proving Ground to collaborate with the Army’s material scientists. Together, Army and 3DS researchers will tap ARL’s expansive high-tech materials characterization toolset, as well as bring together scores of leading polymer and metals scientists from the government and industry. 3DS will also work with the Army on hybridized manufacturing applications using 3D printing to allow for logistics innovations such as in-field manufacturing and efficient depot-level repair.
“Additive manufacturing is redefining what is possible. Novel materials research will enable areas like 3D printed electronics and multi-functional structures. The development of hybridized manufacturing technologies will allow in-field manufacturing, efficient depot-level repair and a reduction of the Army’s overall logistics burden,” said Larry (LJ) Holmes, the Army Research Laboratory’s Principal Investigator in this effort. “Equipping our soldiers with the most cutting edge technology requires innovations throughout our supply chain. We are pleased to embark on this cooperative R&D agreement, which will undoubtedly unlock new scientific discoveries and industrial innovation.”
Additionally, under the lab’s new Open Campus initiative, various companies, universities, and government agencies can apply to access the ARL’s newly acquired inventory of 3D printer technologies from 3DS, including a host of the latest state-of-the-art Stereolithography, Direct Metal Printing, and MultiJet Printing machines.
