  2. 2. OFFICIAL Presentation overview • Introduction to the competition • Navy military drivers • Technical challenges • Competition details • Questions on the competition © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl DSTL/PUB81972 25 June 2014
  3. 3. OFFICIAL Introduction to competition © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl DSTL/PUB81972 25 June 2014
  4. 4. OFFICIAL Military interest in additive manufacturing • Additive manufacturing is likely to be a game changer for the military across a wide range of areas 25 June 2014 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl DSTL/PUB81972 Procurement Compression of the time and cost to go from prototype to in service evaluation. IP! Logistics Manufacturing bespoke or long lead time parts closer to point of use. Improvements in repair and maintainability. Equipment optimisation Lighter weight platforms due to design freedom. Enhanced functionality Doing things in a radically different way!
  5. 5. OFFICIAL MOD strategy on additive manufacturing “To openly state the MOD position and direction on the use of additive manufacture processes, tools and techniques…...” 1. operational & requirements 2. technical 3. commercial © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl DSTL/PUB81972 25 June 2014
  6. 6. OFFICIAL How can you demonstrate enhanced functionality? • Disruptive advances in military equipment could include: – Combination of functions eg power or electronics forming part of the structure or casing – Modular, generic architectures to enable interoperability – Bespoke ‘design for mission’ structures or systems OFFICIAL25 June 2014 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl DSTL/PUB81972 Additive manufacturing = key enabler

  26. 26. OFFICIAL Important information • Competition is a 2-phase approach • Phase 1: – Phase 1 will be contracted through CDE – Phase 1 bids must describe the scope of a potential phase 2 – Phase 1 deliverables must include a more detailed costed proposal for phase 2 to be eligible for follow- on funding © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl DSTL/PUB81972 25 June 2014
  27. 27. OFFICIAL Important information • Phase 2: – Promising concepts from phase 1 may be selected for phase-2 funding, contracted through Dstl – Dstl does not commit to fund any follow-on work, but will consider phase-2 proposals at a second decision conference at the end of phase 1 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl DSTL/PUB81972 25 June 2014
