LABS, announces the release of two Project Calls for research and development efforts to transition
technology originally developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) as part of
its Adaptive Vehicle Make (AVM) program. The two solicitations request proposals from teams combining
large and small manufacturers, commercial software development companies, and academic research
institutions to advance and commercialize a suite of design and manufacturing tools.

The Digital Manufacturing Commons (DMC)
allows users to share data during the design-make process
and across the product life cycle
The platform provides a fundamentally new way for digital information to flow
securely between various segments of the product life cycle;
i.e., suppliers and customers, to and from intelligent machines and workers on the shop floor,
and through supply chains.
This innovation will unlock tremendous value for small and medium enterprises (SMEs),
original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and hardware and software tool-makers.
Project Call #2: AVM Technology Development
Continue developing DARPA AVM technologies so that they are fully functioning, tested and ready to incorporate into commercial software products at a future date.
