New Digital Design Center Aids U.S. Army Vehicle Production
By Claire Tremont, Manager of Communications and Digital Strategy
Operated through the University of Connecticut School of Engineering, the Digital Design Research, Analysis, and Manufacturing (D2REAM) Center – an academic-government-industry partnership that will develop groundbreaking modeling and simulation capabilities for the next generation of Army ground vehicle systems – aims to support advanced structural digital design and manufacturing, and discovery of novel metamaterials.
By using the strong research ecosystems at UConn, the center, which launched in July, looks to build a stronger partnership between academia, government, and industry. The center is supported by a $4 million round of funding in its first year, and by an additional $5 million in the second year.
