About

The Hypersonics Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center (HAMTC) is a single location at Purdue for industry partners to work on materials and manufacturing innovations and provide access to testing capabilities at Purdue that would enable the U.S. to overtake near peer adversaries in the field. 

HAMTC is the only vertically integrated center in the nation that enables the design, manufacturing, joining, and testing of hypersonic components and sub-systems in one location to reduce the time and cost necessary for prototype development, provide innovations through academic engagement, and transition these technologies to the defense industrial base.  

HAMTC is located in the 65,000 square foot Hypersonics and Applied Research Facility at Purdue University.
