Industry 4.0

The Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology, Inc. (CCAT) is excited to launch a series of Industry 4.0 Technology Demonstration Projects. This program will deliver a series of technology workshops and demonstrations to showcase how Industry 4.0 technologies can be used to help optimize manufacturing processes in the New England defense manufacturing supply chain. The technologies include generative design, additive manufacturing, augmented reality, and more. The overall aim is to help increase capability and competitiveness for the region’s defense manufacturers.

These projects are part of the NERDIC Industry 4.0 Readiness Ecosystem program. This overall program is aiming to help small and midsize businesses meet new cybersecurity requirements for businesses participating in the defense industry supply chain, create an Industry 4.0 ready defense industry supplier network; and build a suitably skilled regional workforce.
