Jacket Forming Process Feasibility Study

As the Joint Center of Excellence for Lethality, Picatinny Arsenal provides prototyping capability for small caliber jacket forming. Increasing the critical quality data captured during the process and packaging it in a concise Technical Data Package (TDP) for transfer to full production sites will enhance project transitions to full rate production. MxD is looking to engage with a partner to perform a study of the current system and plan a solution for future implementation with the goal of the production sites having a fast ramp-up to production levels upon receipt of the TDP.

About the Project

The Department of Defense (DoD) is executing their Digital Modernization Strategy through four strategic initiatives: innovation for advantage, optimization, resilient cybersecurity, and cultivation of talent to strengthen the Industrial Base. MxD is tasked with assisting the DoD in the identification of opportunities to develop and implement Advanced Manufacturing Technologies in critical processes to improve methods for manufacturing of existing products. With many pieces of equipment already established in supporting current production, the focus is on what technology can be introduced to gain valuable real-time feedback in improve business decisions along with ability to collect and share information with other facilities for seamless production transitions.
