Program Management

The ARM Institute’s Program Management Team works across project teams and project stakeholders, including Department of Defense (DoD) experts, to ensure project success. We use our ecosystem of experts and government stakeholders to identify areas of need, craft Project Calls that address these needs, and catalyze the most impactful solutions proposed by project teams comprised of several ARM Institute Members. Awarded project teams then work directly with an ARM Institute Program Manager. Only ARM Institute Members can work on our projects. ARM Institute Project Calls may also be directed – a type of Project Call where we work with an individual organization to craft a Project Call and solicit the ARM Membership for solutions.

Our technical projects focus on advancing U.S. manufacturing through robotics solutions. Our diverse portfolio of projects includes robotics solutions for: aerospace, defense, automotive, healthcare, logistics, materials handling, space/hypersonics, education/workforce, material production, textiles, and more industries.
