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 Institutes
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.

DMC Photos & Award Winners
Photo highlights from DMC 2013 have been posted here and as always the presentations are posted in the Workspaces area. This year's award winners are up as well. Did you know? Four out of this year's seven nominees were from DMS&T, the youngest ManTech program!
Three prize award winners were announced for apps developed for the MTConnect, an open, royalty-free set of communications standards intended to foster greater interoperability and information sharing between manufacturing equipment, devices, and software applications. The DMS&T program co-sponsored the contest to develop these apps. For more information about the MTConnect Challenge and the winning projects, please click here.
