IAI Awarded U.S. Army Contract to Continue to Develop Alternative Manufacturing Technologies for Bridging and Structural Applications

ROCKVILLE, Md.—February 19, 2020Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a follow-on contract by the U.S. Army to continue to develop alternative manufacturing technologies for bridging and structural applications.

In this contract, IAI and its subcontractors will continue to develop parts made with alternative manufacturing technologies for integration into bridges or other high strength structures. The primary focus of this effort is the development of a lightweight and high-strength lattice-based metal bridge connection by integrating state-of-the-art topology optimization, process modeling methods, cutting-edge additive manufacturing techniques, and precise component testing.

 “IAI is proud to have been selected by the U.S. Army to support its research related to alternative manufacturing technologies for bridge components. The successful design of a bridge connector prototype developed using additive manufacturing would provide cost effective solutions that maintain high strength and durability,” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI.

IAI specializes in technologies related to non-destructive evaluation, prognostics and diagnostics, and advanced manufacturing. In developing this technology, IAI will leverage its extensive expertise in experimental testing, analysis and simulation, design optimization, and structural testing.
