dc.description.abstractThe intent of this project was to advance previous research into the benefits and challenges of implementing additive manufacturing (AM) in the Navy. Specifically, this project focused on intellectual property (IP) rights, government rights, and the potential impact current laws and regulations may have on AM implementation into the Navy. Research was conducted in a three phases. First, statutory and regulatory laws relating to IP were reviewed to provide a foundation for research analysis. Next, Department of Defense and Navy regulations and policies and government AM and IP reports were reviewed to understand government data-rights standards. Finally, a multi-case study analysis was conducted to determine private and public sector best practices in the management of IP associated with AM. This report concludes with recommendations for Navy management of IP and data rights related to AM.en_US
