  5. 5. OFFICIAL Military interest in Additive Manufacturing • Additive manufacturing is likely to be a game changer for the military across a wide range of areas. 09 July 2014 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl 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!
  6. 6. 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 09 July 2014
  7. 7. OFFICIAL How can you demonstrate enhanced functionality? • Disruptive advances in military equipment could include: – Combination of functions e.g. power or electronics forming part of the structure or casing – Modular, generic architectures to enable interoperability – Bespoke ‘design for mission’ structures or systems OFFICIAL09 July 2014 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl Additive manufacturing = key enabler
