January 2014 UPDATE
There were no better places to see the resilience of advanced manufacturing and the convergence of new technologies than during the Consumer Electronics Show and North American International Auto Show this month. The automotive industry has drawn center spotlight as new, connected, eco-friendly, safer vehicles are produced globally. Everyone has a role to play from Silicon Valley to the automotive R&D centers around the planet. The AutoHarvest ecosystem brings you One-Click-Closer™ to new relationships and partnerships that drive the adoption of innovation.
Through our work with the United States Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center, we are now featuring in our searchable database over 70 high tech Army labs potentially available to innovators to save time and cost in prototyping and testing new technologies.
