Composites Manufacturing Technology Center

Established in 2000, the Composites Manufacturing Technology Center (CMTC) is a virtual center that develops improved manufacturing processes for composite-based components and facilitates technology transfer to resolve manufacturing and repair issues identified and prioritized by the Navy’s Program Executive Offices, other DOD services and industry. Operated by Advanced Technology International (ATI) in Summerville, SC, CMTC forms teams of prime contractors, composites industry suppliers and universities to address Navy composites manufacturing technology needs and has strong in-depth knowledge and experience in composites manufacturing technology for all DOD weapon systems. As part of CMTC’s organizational structure, all laboratories, facilities and project labor resources are provided by project teams. This structure results in cost benefit to the Navy, with maximum funding going to project execution. CMTC’s current portfolio includes composites manufacturing projects for four major ship platforms, the F-35 Lightning II aircraft and the CH-53K heavy lift helicopter.
