Hyperlocal Manufacturing Unit Fits In A Shipping Container
The US Army is building systems that can quickly and cheaply create parts and equipment in combat zones.
The US Special Operations Command is building a series of mobile workshops that can repair their equipment and even create new objects from scratch. The Mobile Technology Complex (MTC) is based on an old army concept of Mobile Parts Hospital that was started to speed up the manufacturing and procurement of replacement parts in combat zones. The entire system fits in a standard shipping container.
