Save the Date for the third annual ATDM & AM COE Summit: October 10-12, 2023.
Workforce and manufacturing shortfalls are particularly acute in the naval shipbuilding and repair sector of the SIB impacting material readiness of the current fleet; major maintenance and overhaul availability; and new construction. The “1 COLUMBIA + 2 VIRGINIA” construction cadence beginning in FY26 will further stress the Submarine Industrial Base (SIB).
The Accelerated Training in Defense Manufacturing Program (ATDM) and the Navy Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM COE), co-located on the campus of the Institute for Advance Learning and Research (IALR) in Danville, Virginia have been established to address these challenges. These projects are moving forward under the direction of the Industrial Base Analysis and Sustainment Program Office (IBAS) in the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) and Navy’s Program Executive Office (PEO) Strategic Submarines.
ATDM trains workers in the critical manufacturing skills to establish a steady and sustainable flow of workers into the SIB/DIB to fill critical skills gaps and manpower shortages. The AM COE directly supports the growth of our Nation’s industrial base by using additive manufacturing for the production of submarine components to bolster naval shipbuilding and repair supply chains.
The 2023 ATDM and AM COE Summit aims to increase awareness of these important initiatives and to promote participation and contributions by industry and other stakeholders.
