Abstract
The Navy and Marines have been deploying AM capabilities across the Fleet for several years through a variety of efforts. The Navy Expeditionary Combat Force (NECF) wishes to understand how to maximize return on investment when deploying AM equipment in DMO/LOCE/EABO and other situations while ensuring interoperability with existing efforts by the Navy and Marine Corps and minimizing duplicated efforts. This research aims to aid decision makers in understanding how to best integrate future NECF AM efforts with existing and near-term Naval efforts.
