Institute for Manufacturing and Sustainment Technologies

The Institute for Manufacturing and Sustainment Technologies (iMAST), established in 1995, coordinates Navy ManTech efforts at The Pennsylvania State University Applied Research Laboratory (ARL), one of five U.S. Navy University Affiliated Research Centers (UARCs). Located in State College, PA, iMAST’s primary objective is to address challenges related to Navy and Marine Corps weapon system platforms in the following technical areas: materials processing, laser processing, advanced composites, manufacturing systems, repair and sustainment, and complex systems monitoring. iMAST supports the Navy and Marine Corps systems commands, as well as PEOs and Navy laboratories.

The Repair Technology (RepTech) program applies new and emerging technologies to improve capabilities of Navy depots, shipyards, Marine Depot Maintenance Command, and lower level maintenance activities throughout the fleet. RepTech cooperates and communicates with other Navy COEs, the joint depot community, DOD industrial activities, industry, PEOs, and university laboratories.
