Reflecting on this idea of having a RP machine at a retail parts service

Does anyone have any knowledge or experience with what I believe was being
called something like the " mobile army parts center". The idea that some
sort of sintering machine was going to be deployed in a trailer to produce
military replacement parts close to the point of need. Also, I thought that
some of the early RP money came from DARPA grants looking at putting the
same sort of technology on aircraft carriers.

Was anything like this ever successfully implemented?
