RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN provides information regarding Naval Additive
Manufacturing (AM) capabilities and provides steps to obtain Navy Organic AM
produced parts and supplies. While still an evolving option for Navy Supply
chains, AM has continued to mature and is in use by the Department of the
Navy. Items ranging from repair parts to consumable supplies have already
been produced and provided to the Fleet. While the list of approved AM parts
continues to grow, the current list can be found at the Joint Technical Data
Integration (JTDI) Website: https://www.jtdi.mil. Navy AM capability
currently produces parts made from polymer, composite materials and metal.
2. The process to obtain AM produced parts or supplies is also evolving and
may differ across United States Navy Systems Commands (SYSCOM)/production
sites. The steps provided in this NAVADMIN are intended to be integrated
with existing supply/maintenance processes. An appropriate path forward to
meet technical requirements will be recommended by the SYSCOM point of
contact (POC). If AM is determined to be a capable path for production and
meets requestor requirements such as timeline and budget, SYSCOM POC will
connect requestor with production coordinator for a designated production
site(s). AM pricing and lead time may vary from pricing via normal supply
chain options. Units requiring AM support for parts or supplies should:
a. If applicable, coordinate with 3MC/Maintenance Department to ensure
maintenance actions are performed and tracked in accordance with
b. Contact SYSCOM POC responsible for the equipment associated with the
required item to discuss AM options and ensure compliance with SYSCOM
specific policy per references (d) through (g) or other applicable
guidance/updates. A form with requested information is available on the JTDI
website and includes information such as part number, national item
identification number, drawing, applicable system, component location,
material requirements, and performance requirements. SYSCOM contact
information is provided below.
c. Send a demand only military standard requisitioning and issue
procedures to Navy enterprise resource planning (MILSTRIP) to ensure the item
manager can track the demand signal. For non-national stock number (NSN) AM
fabricated items, the supply department shall submit a MILSTRIP BHJ to report
the fabrication of non-NSN material. For NSN AM fabricated material, the
supply department shall submit a MILSTRIP DHA to report the fabrication of
d. Coordinate with the identified SYSCOM production coordinator provided
by the SYSCOM POC.
3. For AM items with AM NSNs established, standard requisition policy should
be followed in accordance with reference (h). If off-hull, I-level or above
assistance is required for compliant fabrication of an item, standard
procedures for this process should be followed.
4. Unless other existing procedures/work orders or support arrangements are
available, obtaining AM items fabricated via the organic industrial base
(OIB) above the unit-level can be funded via a DD1149 or DD1348 with a line
of accounting. Units should use appropriate funding in accordance with
standard requisition policy. Questions regarding fiscal policy should be
directed to your local comptroller. Rough order of magnitude cost, schedule
and funding documents will be coordinated directly between the SYSCOM POC and
5. For questions, please contact your SYSCOM POC:
a. NAVSEA: NAVSEA_AM@navy.mil
b. NAVAIR: NAVAIR_AM.email@example.com
c. NAVFAC or NECF: NAVFAC_NECF_AM@navy.mil
d. Other SYSCOM: NavyAM@navy.mil
