Upcoming Events

  • August 19, Washington, D.C.:
    NDIA Manufacturing Division Meeting

    The NDIA Systems Engineering Division will hold its next division meeting August 19, 2015 at General Dynamics in Washington, D.C. DoD ManTech members will be in attendance.

  • October 5-7, Indianapolis, IN:
    NADCA Die Casting Congress & Exposition

    This event is of interest to the Metals community of DoD ManTech, and to the LIFT Institute and their members.

  • November 9-12, Chicago, IL:
    FABTECH 2015

    This event is of interest to the Metals community of DoD ManTech, and to the LIFT Institute and their members.

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.

New Integrated Photonics Institute for Manufacturing Innovation Announced

On July 27, 2015, Vice President Biden announced that the Research Foundation for the State University of New York (RF SUNY) will lead a new Integrated Photonics Institute for Manufacturing Innovation. The Institute, otherwise known as AIM Photonics, will focus on cutting-edge research in integrated photonics —using multiple units of light, on a single platform, to improve the performance and reliability of telecommunications, high-performance computing, sensor applications, and other technologies. The $110 million in federal funding will be combined with more than $500 million from the winning consortium. For more information, please read the White House Fact Sheet.

DMC 2015 is Coming Soon!

DMC is the nation’s largest annual forum for enhancing and leveraging the efforts of scientists, engineers, managers, technology leaders and policy makers across the defense manufacturing industrial base.
