Stevens-ARDEC
Collaborative R & D

DMI is working with US ARMY ARDEC (Picatinny Arsenal) on several collaborative research projects.

  • Micro-Devices laboratory: A MEMS research, design and prototyping facility for High-G, harsh environment applications.
  • Wireless control of remote weapons stations: Embedded solutions for long range wireless control and operation of weapons systems. Stevens developed hardware and software required for seamlessly extending input/output, serial and CAN (Control Area Networks) on wireless networks.
  • Modeling, simulation and optimization of production systems: DMI is developing plug and play modules for modernizing factories producing discrete components applicable to armaments and ammunition.
  • Manufacturing Science and Technologies: Using simulation-based design and optimization, DMI is developing tools and methods that assess and optimize components and sub-assemblies for low cost, high production rates and integrating new materials.
