Defense Consulting

Looking for new customers for your products or services? We offer assistance to local companies looking to diversify into the defense industry. 

Our relationships with defense industry leaders provide multiple access points for companies to approach the industry. We can help you determine where to focus your efforts to get results, whether that is with the Department of Defense, defense-sector OEMs or elsewhere.

We partner with the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) to find innovative, high-tech companies with capabilities related to ground vehicle technology. 

These include, but are not limited to:

  • Robotics and automation
  • Power and mobility
  • Vehicle electronics
  • Survivability
  • Modeling and simulation
  • Evaluation and visualization

To request a meeting to discuss your next steps in the defense industry, including presenting your ground vehicle technology to TARDEC, contact us today.

DMSMS & VisCom™

In recent years, the U.S. defense industry has shifted its focus from producing new weapons, vehicles and other defense systems to sustaining existing systems. However, many of the original suppliers and manufacturers of the various parts that make up these systems are no longer in business or have ceased to supply needed parts. 

To assist the Department of Defense (DoD) in their sustainment efforts, Automation Alley developed VisCom™, a database and communication tool that lists tens of thousands of manufacturers and suppliers across the U.S. and includes valuable information on each company, such as their financial viability and technical capabilities. If an original manufacturer or supplier is no longer in business or has stopped supplying a particular part or material, Automation Alley can identify companies through VisCom™ that are capable of reverse engineering the parts and developing a corresponding technical data package and prototype. 

To learn more about our defense opportunities, contact us today.

Reverse Engineering

In cases where the original supplier or manufacturer of a part needed by the Army is no longer in business, the technical data needed to continue manufacturing that part is often lost or is only available at a high price. In these cases, Automation Alley can identify companies through VisCom™ that are capable of reverse engineering the parts and developing a corresponding technical data package and prototype.
