  • Multiple opportunities for cooperative Navy and Marine Corps innovation using 3D models are emerging.  Shared 3D visualization over the Web can help naval personnel worldwide, enabling better insight, increased velocity of learning, and knowledge sharing through real-time group collaboration.
  • The objective of this information meeting is to raise awareness, share recent examples showcasing innovation using 3D graphics, and explore shared strategies that can serve as key innovation enablers in the areas of collaboration, model exchanges and Additive Manufacturing (AM).
  • Multiple speakers provide fast-paced briefings that together show a "bigger space" emerging.  These practical capabilities can have positive effects on weapon system design goals, contracting requirements, logistics, maintenance and operations.
  • Data standards provide archival stability for long-term re-use even as software capabilities continue to advance rapidly. 
  • Participants can discuss their reactions "around the table" together to share ideas of opportunities, and potential synergies that can further the "art of the possible" to support Department of the Navy Innovation.
  • Please join us to share ideas and consider new strategic innovation possibilities for 2017 and beyond.
