The Air Force's Rapid Sustainment Office is seeking industry feedback for advanced manufacturing to reduce sustainment and operational costs along with improving mission readiness.

RSO’s Advanced Manufacturing Program Office, which posted the request online today, is sourcing market research, asking companies to describe their work with advanced manufacturing and what their core technical capabilities are.

The AMPO wants to know how these companies work with systems such as additive manufacturing, directed-energy deposition, cold spray, reverse engineering and inspection technologies.

It’s asking companies to describe their processes for development and operation and how they approach acquiring new capabilities. Companies should also describe their abilities to develop or maintain applications relating to Platform as a Service and Agile methodologies.

Responses should be submitted by July 29.
