In developing manufacturing technology needed for key acquisition platforms, Navy ManTech ensures that implemented technologies are both producible and affordable. ManTech alone, however, cannot ensure implementation in a system. EMTC coordinates with the relevant Navy and industry representatives to identify all requirements which must be met to ensure ManTech transition and to achieve implementation on the platform/weapon system and/or at an industrial/naval organic facility.
Industry takes technology available from the government and explores successful commercialization possibilities: for example, airbags from military gas generators. Government takes technology available from the private sector and applies it to energetics manufacturing: for example, pharmaceutical industry equipment modified to mix energetic material ingredients. Technology transfer provides the military products at lower costs with higher quality, greater reliability, and easier maintainability.
