Mitre has stood up a new laboratory that will house efforts to prototype and produce new technologies via additive manufacturing or 3D printing and other precision tooling resources.
The nonprofit said Tuesday its new Massachusetts-based Advanced Manufacturing Lab measures 2,600 square feet and will apply AM technologies to hardware development to move it from concept to end-use.
Experts at the laboratory will use the mentioned technologies and partner with industry and academia to conceptualize, prototype, demonstrate and produce new 3D-printed hardware.
“As we continue our efforts to train a skilled workforce and build on the successful partnerships that support growth in this important industry, this lab will help ensure Massachusetts remains a place where advanced manufacturing can continue to expand and thrive,” said Mike Kennealy, housing and economic development secretary for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Mitre previously developed the FUSE wideband phased array antenna via advanced manufacturing. The antenna also won an R&D 100 award.
