Department of Defense ManTech
The Department of Defense investment mechanism for staying at the forefront of defense-essential manufacturing capability and affordably meeting warfighters’ needs.
This website is a hub for all of the various DoD ManTech programs, the projects they manage, and the Joint Defense ManTech Panel. We hope to provide information on each individual participating organization, how they work together, and how all of this came to be. The overall ManTech program is overseen by the office of Manufacturing and Industrial Base Policy (MIBP) within OSD AT&L, however each component ManTech program is managed individually. For the full story, please explore, and if you still have questions, we’re here to Help.
Progress on Manufacturing Intitutes
On February 25, 2014, President Obama announced two Department of Defense led manufacturing institutes, the Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation (DMDI) Institute and the Lightweight and Modern Metals Manufacturing Innovation (LM3I) Institute. These institutes will serve as a regional hub, bridging the gap between applied research and product development by bringing together companies, universities, and other acedemic and training institutes.
