ARM Institute Funds New Technology Projects

Education, Robotics, Workforce

The ARM (Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing) Institute has selected eight new short-cycle technology projects for funding from its 23-01 Technology Project Call released earlier this year. The ARM Institute plans to award nearly $1.56M in project funding from various sources, for a total contribution of approximately $3.26M across these eight projects. To date, the ARM Institute has funded and managed more than 150 robotics and AI technology and workforce development projects.

The ARM Institute is a Department of Defense Manufacturing Innovation Institute and a member of the Manufacturing USA© Network. The ARM Institute leverages its ecosystem of nearly 400 member organizations across industry, government, and academia to catalyze critically needed robotics and workforce innovations in manufacturing.

ARM Institute projects are selected from our Project Calls. These Project Calls are crafted in collaboration with the ARM Institute’s internal team of experts, ARM Members, and our Department of Defense collaborators. Our 23-01 Technology Project Call specifically called for proposals to address the following topic areas:

  • Automated Robotic Task Planning
  • Multi-Robot, Multi-Human Collaboration, Task Sharing & Task Allocation
  • Safe and Scalable Manufacturing of Energetics
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Robotics for Manufacturing
  • Discovery Workshops and Market Studies
