Navy ManTech Navy Manufacturing Technology

The Navy ManTech program is organized to improve the affordability of naval platforms critical to the future force. Investments are focused on manufacturing technologies to assist key acquisition program offices in achieving their respective affordability goals. The Navy ManTech program responds to naval needs for the production and repair of platforms, systems and equipment. It aids in achieving reduced acquisition and total ownership costs by developing, maturing and transitioning key manufacturing technologies and processes. Investments are focused on those having the most benefit to the warfighter.
