Senvol has joined the National Armaments Consortium (NAC). NAC is the industry and academia component of the Department of Defense Ordnance Technology Consortium (DOTC) and is the preeminent collaboration organization that enables the U.S. Government, industry, and academia to deliver rapid armaments innovation for the United States’ security.
DOTC was initially commissioned by the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics as a U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) initiative. The goal was to facilitate collaborative government, industry and academic ordnance technology development and prototyping. Today, DOTC’s mission is to enable the DoD Ordnance community to work collaboratively in RDT&E of prototype solutions to advance and transition ordnance systems, subsystems and component technologies.
Senvol President Zach Simkin commented, “We’re pleased to join the National Armaments Consortium and look forward to contributing to the advancement of armament technologies in the United States. Senvol is the global leader in data for additive manufacturing, and we’re eager to support the consortium’s mission through the use of additive manufacturing analytics.”
Government participants of DOTC include U.S. Army AMRDEC, Naval Surface Warfare Centers, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and Naval Air Systems Command, among others.
Technology areas of focus for DOTC include: Ammunition, Demilitarization, Directed Energy Warfare, Enabling Technologies, Energetic Materials, Fuzes, Joint Insensitive Munitions, Protection & Survivability, Rockets, Missiles and Bombs, Sensors & Sensor Systems, Warheads Lethal Mechanisms, and Weapon Systems.
