A collaboration of Integrated Systems Engineering (Jose M. Castro) and the Center for Design and Manufacturing Excellence (CDME) (Michael Gentil and Dan Zhang) has resulted in two successful funded proposals. The first proposal is a LIFT, Department of Defense Award Hypersonic Challenge Project led by ATC Materials in High-Temperature Composite Manufacturing, the second Project is led by NODIS corporation. The first project involves material characterization and molding of materials developed by ATC. The second project involves formulating a UV curable pressure sensitive adhesive to be used in SMART glass technology.

CDME was created at Ohio State to support Ohio Manufacturing and works with companies and researchers to translate new technologies into real-world, market-ready manufactured products. These projects give student employees at CDME hands-on experience integrating new technology while providing our customers the workforce advantage necessary to compete in a global marketplace.  CDME, led by Executive Director Nate Ames, is staffed with full time engineers, scientists, and project managers, to effectively support the manufacturing industry.

LIFT, operated by the American Lightweight Materials Manufacturing Innovation Institute (ALMMII), is a public-private partnership between the U.S. Department of Defense, industry and academia, part of the national network of manufacturing innovation institutes, driving the U.S. mobility sector toward the future manufacturing revolution to support our nation’s economy and enhance our national security.
