Composites Manufacturing Center of Excellence

The Composites Manufacturing Technology Center (CMTC), established in 2000, is located in Summerville, SC, and is operated by Advanced Technology International (ATI). The CMTC is a virtual center, providing expertise from across the defense industrial base to address all Navy composites manufacturing technology needs.

CMTC forms teams of prime contractors, composites industry suppliers, and universities and has strong in-depth knowledge and experience in composites manufacturing technology for all modern DOD weapon systems. As part of CMTC’s organizational structure, all laboratories, facilities, and project labor resources are provided by project teams. This unique structure results in cost benefit to the Navy, with maximum funding going to project execution. CMTC’s current portfolio includes composites manufacturing projects for four major ship platforms, CH-53K, and the F-35 Lightning II.
