The Department of Defense has awarded the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) a grant to establish the Texas Defense Aerospace Manufacturing Community (TDAMC). This five-year program will inject targeted smart manufacturing skills and technologies into Texas’ diverse aerospace manufacturing portfolio to support defense aerospace manufacturing needs and affiliated supply chains across the state.
The Texas A&M RGV Advanced Manufacturing/Training Innovation Now (TRAIN) program gathers community input, creates collaborations and develops training courses that meet the needs of current and future employers at the Port of Brownsville. In two years, TRAIN will award 10,000 certificates through online and on-site classes.
Warm thanks to Dr. Ankit Sharan from EOS who shared his thoughts with SecureAmerica partners today on the exciting developments in 3D-printable copper and nickel alloys and the work EOS is doing to expand their use. The increasing availability of 3D printable copper- and nickel-based alloys is a critical enabler to support space and hypersonics applications, which are two of the recently announced U.S. Defense Modernization Priorities.
The SecureAmerica Institute (SAI) is partnering with America Makes, the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute and part of the Manufacturing USA network to increase Texas manufacturing resiliency by aligning capabilities and connecting manufacturing communities in the state to areas of need during crises.
