Naval Postgraduate School Foundation announces Xerox as 2021 Corporate Partner of the Year
The Naval Postgraduate School Foundation presented Xerox with the 2021 Corporate Partner of the Year Award during the annual America's Heroes Charity Golf Tournament dinner, Oct. 18, 2021.
In its inaugural year, the award recognizes a corporate partner of the NPS Foundation that demonstrates continued innovation and support of education, research, and applied solutions that emerge from the Naval Postgraduate School and drive world-changing advancements for defense, industry, technology, climate and more — right now and into the future.
"Over the last year, Xerox partnered with the Naval Postgraduate School to transform logistics in the Navy and Marine Corps through its collaboration in additive manufacturing,"

"It's an honor to receive the Corporate Partner of the Year Award from the Naval Postgraduate School Foundation,"
The NPS Foundation supported bringing the ElemX™ Liquid Metal Printer to NPS to enable the school's faculty and students to conduct thesis research and seek new ways to extend the Navy's and Marine Corps' capabilities. Investments of $50,000 from NPSF, $1 million from Xerox and the contributions of the unique military student-civilian faculty NPS team have resulted in the Commander of Surface Forces identifying the ElemX for at-sea trials onboard a deploying Navy ship in Fiscal Year 22. This deployment will provide invaluable data with the potential to transform the supply chain and how the DOD thinks operationally about supply.
To further demonstrate commitment to the partnership and additive manufacturing, the Corporate Partner of the Year Award was designed by an engineer at Xerox and printed using the ElemX™. Future awards for the next 10 years will also be printed using Xerox's ElemX™ technology.
