Abstract:

The National Aerospace Leadership Initiative NALI was created to respond to the critical needs of the United States aerospace small-to-medium size manufacturers SMM and the manufacturing supply chain. Its initial focus has centered on needs of the United States Air Force USAF advanced propulsion and power systems and it has expanded to other critical components of our nations weapons systems. The NALI goal is to assure the effectiveness of an innovative and highly-competitive domestic aerospace manufacturing supplier base to meet the current and future requirements of the Department of Defense and the U.S. national economy. This initiative supports maintaining U.S. leadership in aerospace applied research and development, fortifies the U.S.-based manufacturing supply chain, and helps to reinforce the U.S. aerospace original equipment manufacturers technology and production market share as well as the underlying supply base. The three major objectives are to 1 Strengthen the U.S. aerospace manufacturing supply chain 2 Accelerate technology transition from research to application - advanced laser processes, machining, and modeling and simulation and 3 Assure an educated, capable aerospace manufacturing workforce.
