Centers of Excellence
Hypersonics Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center (HAMTC)
HAMTC provides co-located facilities for design of components and system integration, additive manufacturing of components and joining of sub-assemblies, and thermo-mechanical and wind tunnel testing of hypersonic sub-systems, in order to transition prototypes to the defense industrial base. HAMTC is a part of the Purdue Applied Research Institute.
Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI)
IACMI, a public-private partnership, validates manufacturing technologies that respond to private industry’s need for faster and more cost, material and energy-efficient composite manufacturing, including recycling at the end of product life.
Institute of Global Security and Defense Innovation (i-GSDI)
i-GSDI provides cross-cutting research capabilities to Purdue’s strength and core competences in STEM, advanced instrumentation, nanotechnology, social and behavioral sciences, big data/simulation/cyber security, entrepreneurship and complex systems.
