United States manufacturing and innovation are essential to American economic and national security. Maintaining U.S. influence and access to markets in a stable global environment contributes to our prosperity and standard of living. It is the responsibility of the Department of Defense (DoD) to innovate and equip our forces with the best tools possible. The DoD Manufacturing Technology (ManTech) enterprise uses advanced manufacturing to execute the National Defense Strategy
priorities – defending the homeland, deterring strategic attacks, deterring aggression, and building a resilient Joint Force and defense ecosystem.
