ATI manages three Centers of Excellence for ONR: the Composites Manufacturing Technology Center (CMTC), the Center for Naval Metalworking (CNM), and the Naval Shipbuilding and Advanced Manufacturing Center (NSAM). CMTC develops improved manufacturing processes for composites and advanced materials, and facilitates technology transfer for resolution of manufacturing and repair issues. CNM develops and deploys innovative metalworking and related manufacturing technologies to reduce cost and time to build and repair key Navy ships and weapons platforms. NSAM develops and drives manufacturing improvements to reduce the cost and time to build and repair Navy platforms. ATI also manages The Composites Consortium (TCC), an integrated team of traditional and non-traditional defense contractors, composites industry suppliers, and academic institutions. TCC advances the use of innovative manufacturing processes, lightweight and advanced materials, and composites for DoD applications.
