Abstract : The Navy ManTech Program provides for the development of enabling manufacturing technology and the transition of this technology for the production and sustainment of Navy weapon systems to support the Fleet. Navy ManTech is currently focused on shipbuilding affordability. Reducing the acquisition cost of current and future platforms is a critical goal of the Navy, and ManTech aids in achieving this goal by developing, maturing, and transitioning key manufacturing technologies. Transition of technology is key to Navy ManTech success. Advances in manufacturing technology are useful to the Navy only if they result in implementation in the production of weapon systems. Transition of manufacturing processes to private and government industrial entities that manufacture and repair systems and components for the Fleet is the goal of every ManTech project. The Navy ManTech Program works with defense contractors, the Naval Research Enterprise, Navy acquisition Program Offices, and academia to develop improved processes and equipment. The Program is structured to provide maximum dissemination of the results of ManTech projects and to promote early implementation to strengthen the defense industrial base. With their expertise in specific technology areas, the Navy ManTech Centers of Excellence (COEs) play a key role in the definition and execution of the Navy ManTech Program. The customers of the Navy ManTech Program range from the acquisition Program Managers (PMs) and industry responsible for transitioning major Navy weapon systems from development into production, to the logistics managers at the naval depots and shipyards responsible for repair, overhaul, and remanufacture of major weapon systems. Additional beneficiaries of the Navy ManTech Program include the other Services and academia.
