About DoD ManTech
For over 50 years, the DoD Manufacturing Technology Program has been the Defense Department’s investment mechanism for staying at the forefront of defense-essential manufacturing capability.
Through all of our various projects, selected and managed individually by the Component ManTech programs, the DoD ManTech Program develops technologies and processes for the affordable, timely production and sustainment of defense systems. The program impacts all phases of acquisition. It aids in achieving reduced acquisition and total ownership costs by developing, maturing, and transitioning key manufacturing technologies. Investments are focused on those that have the most benefit to the Warfighter and include quick-hitting, rapid response projects to address immediate manufacturing needs.
ManTech focuses on the needs of our warfighters and weapon system programs by helping to find and implement affordable, low-risk solutions. ManTech:
- Provides the crucial link between technology invention and development and industrial applications.
- Matures and validates emerging manufacturing technologies to support low-risk implementation in industry and DoD facilities, e.g., depots and shipyards.
- Addresses production issues from system development through transition to production and sustainment.
