American Center for Manufacturing & Innovation



At ACMI, our munitions campus 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 manufacturing 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.


Accelerating new technology and bridging commercial tech for industry and defense needs

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 overriding purpose of this campus is to accelerate the American industrial base to support what comes next beyond lithium. Leaping to a next generation of batteries based on domestically-sourced abundant minerals is critical to national security.
