Direct Writing (ARL)

Rowan University, New Jersey has received $14.5 million from the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) to develop cold spray additive manufacturing (CSAM). In a project titled “Advancing Structural Materials for Army Modernization Priorities via Direct-Write Approaches” Rowan researchers will apply technological improvements to enhance the safety of soldiers.

The project teams Rowan University with global supplier of paints, coatings and specialty materials PPGDrexel UniversityNortheastern University, and the University of Massachusetts Amherst to create new materials and ways to process them.
