Seven federal labs from the Federal Laboratory Consortium’s Midwest Region - representing the Air Force, Army, Navy, Department of Energy, NASA, Department of Agriculture, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) - are cooperating in an initiative to help automotive manufacturers and suppliers access the resources of the federal laboratory system.

These labs have provided technologies that were presented and discussed at an interagency meeting held February 9-10 at the National Automotive Center (NAC) in Warren, MI. NAC is part of the Army's Tank-Automotive Research, Development, and Engineering Center (TARDEC). At the interagency meeting, lab representatives and a group of industry advisers formed several technology teams whose respective organizations are looking at similar problems from different perspectives. The technology teams are: Safety, Environment, Vehicle Systems, Electrical/ Electronics, Materials, and Powertrain.

For more information on the initiative, contact Sue Leitner, FLC Midwest Regional Support Office, at 513/948-4032 or leitner@iams.org
