A 3D printer completes production of a design using layers of materials formed through computer software.

Advanced manufacturing provides increased access to product replication and the agility to pivot when product needs change. SecureAmerica Institute partners are developing techniques to embed unique markers in 3D-printed products to identify counterfeit production.

A Black female nurse siting on hallway floor with back against wall, looking down with hand on her head, and a mask partially off her face, in a fatigued state.

Texas A&M University and Arizona State University are collaborating on a $4.8 million multidisciplinary project to study human breath and develop artificial intelligence algorithms to predict fatigue states.

What if it was possible to proactively plan, and respond and recover as quickly as possible following a supply chain disruption? The SecureAmerica Institute is tackling that challenge with the Robotics and Automation Decision framework for Agility and Resilience.

Gas turbine blades with abstract graphic of a computational framework.

In high-temperature conditions, turbine blades can result in catastrophic failure from melting or oxidizing. A team of researchers developed an artificial intelligence framework to predict high-entropy alloys that can withstand extreme environments, reducing the time and costs of finding new alloy compositions.

Computer-generated illustration of clear cell structures with colorful nucleus interiors.

Texas A&M University and University of Florida researchers collaborated to discover how the nucleus of a cell preserves its shape, allowing normal and cancer cells to squeeze past pores and fibers in body tissues.
