The research program is a partnership between ERDC and the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Alabama. The school, in turn, is partnering with Alfab, Inc. of Enterprise, Alabama, to manufacture the panels… “What’s great is that at the university, one of our biggest deliverables is our students,” said Dr. Paul Allison, director of the Manufacturing at the Point of Need Center at the University of Alabama.
