At ACMI, our technology campuses will be the nation’s premier co-located space with shared infrastructure for advanced manufacturing and innovation to meet the nation’s national security needs with the American industrial base. We bring together the world’s leading experts, the most advanced equipment, and best practices in a single location.
We are currently at work to develop a campus to close the gap for the manufacture of chemicals and materials for energetics, such as advanced rocket propulsion and hypersonic missiles in the United States. Our campus serves as a prototype for similar campuses across the nation.
Our Battery Innovation Campus is focused on new technologies (including next-generation batteries, equipment, and recycling) and bridging commercial technologies (including electrical vehicles, aircraft, and satellites) for military use with national partners across the battery ecosystem from industry, national labs, universities, and investors. Once developed, this will facilitate unprecedented innovation of battery production technology and new battery chemistries required to meet demand for future energy storage. The Lithium-Ion battery took 30 years to move from idea to mass industry adoption. The overriding purpose of this campus is to accelerate the American industrial base to align to support what comes next beyond lithium. We need to move beyond our reliance on critical minerals to leap to a next-generation of batteries based on domestically sourced abundant minerals.
