Utilizing Additive Manufacturing Capabilities to Strengthen America’s Defense

DSI’s Military Additive Manufacturing Summit, occurring on February 7th & 8th, 2017, will be held at the CAMLS / University of South Florida, Tampa, FL.

Tampa, FL, December 17, 2016 --(PR.com)-- DSI’s Military Additive Manufacturing Summit will focus on advancing the DoD's capacity to leverage 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing in order to deliver greater operational flexibility to Military Leaders and Warfighters in the deployed environment.

Through an educational “town-hall” style forum, DSI will provide US Military commands, academia, and solution providers the opportunity to explore the tremendous role that additive manufacturing will play within the US defense industry. The goal of this summit is to foster a meaningful discussion on how additive manufacturing can fundamentally improve the performance and combat capability of US Military units in the industrial and operational environment.

DSI’s Military Additive Manufacturing Summit, occurring on February 7th & 8th, 2017, will be held at the CAMLS / University of South Florida, Tampa, FL. Thanks in part to its leading business climate, workforce, and trade and transportation infrastructure, Florida ranks among the nation’s top 10 states for manufacturing and is home to more than 18,600 manufacturing companies. Join DSI for this year’s discussion, and convene with leading experts in the US Military, Government, industry, and academia to hold a constructive dialog on the advancing the future of Additive Manufacturing within the US Defense industry.
