The EMTC is one of nine Centers of Excellence established by the ONR ManTech Program to identify and execute projects. Navy ManTech concentrates on developing, demonstrating, transitioning and implementing new or improved manufacturing processes for the production of weapon systems, subsystems and/or their components. The goal of the program is to use demonstrated manufacturing science and technology from research and development (R&D) work in order to develop and implement manufacturing processes that produce affordable (lower costs), quality (increase reliability) products. In other words, Navy ManTech provides a bridge from demonstrated R&D to implementation of new or improved manufacturing technology into the production arena.
