Project Calls

LIFT’s project calls offer our ecosystem the opportunity to submit proposals on topics designed to Drive American Manufacturing Into the Future. Project Calls can either be directed projects on specific topic areas from our federal partners or open to new ideas you and your organization might have.

Whichever form they take, each Project Call will have its own unique membership and submission requirements and funding opportunities, so see the open calls below for more information or contact LIFT directly with any questions.

Hypersonics Thermal Management: Hypersonics Testing

LIFT seeks increased development of hypersonic materials and processes for manufacturing to support the OSD’s requirement for Cross Platform System’s Development. ALMMII, the Great Lakes Region’s premier advanced manufacturing and economic development asset, is rapidly becoming the nation’s leader in strengthening the industrial base and accelerating manufacturing process technology. LIFT has invested in and developed a significant ICME hypersonic capability and infrastructure via team projects. LIFT proposes a rapid design of advanced future generation hypersonic materials and manufacturing processes for application in the time frame beyond 2025. Materials focused on those that offer functionally graded optimization which are manufactured through a cold-spray additive process. ICME capabilities will be developed to model and simulate the manufacture of these functionally graded materials systems allowing for agile and fast deployment in various component geometries and uses.

Hypersonics Materials Acceleration: Hypersonics Testing

LIFT seeks increased hypersonic materials development of ICME (Integrated Computational Materials Engineering) as a critical core competency for the Navy. LIFT has invested in and developed a significant ICME hypersonic capability and infrastructure via team projects proposing a two-pronged rapid design of advanced future generation materials and manufacturing processes for application in the time frame beyond 2025. Through initial program efforts, LIFT developed significant capability with ICME for ceramics and additively manufactured metallics subjected to hypersonic conditions. This capability will be extended to ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) produced via traditional methods.
