The Energetics Manufacturing Technology Center (EMTC), established in 1994 by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) Manufacturing Technology (ManTech) Program, is Navy operated and located at the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Indian Head Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technology Division (NSWC IHEODTD), Indian Head, MD. Our objectives are to identify weapon system and manufacturing base needs, develop and demonstrate the required manufacturing process technology solutions, and finally transition successful results. EMTC's goal 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.
