Mimi Vymola will be leading a workshop on two sources of funding for government projects: Navy Manufacturing Technology (ManTech) and National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP). In addition, CCAT will be highlighting their programs that support the supply chain in the naval and maritime industry. They were recently awarded $5M from the ManTech program and are seeking partners for execution and ideas.
Navy ManTech is a program under the Office of Naval Research and funds the development and transition of new manufacturing processes and equipment in a cooperative environment with industry, academia and the Naval Research Enterprise.
NSRP is a collaboration of shipyards and the Navy focused on shipbuilding research and development. NSRP focuses on technologies and processes that will reduce the total ownership cost of ships and developing and leveraging best commercial and naval practices to improve the efficiency of the U.S. shipbuilding and ship repair industry.
Mimi Vymola worked for General Dynamics Electric Boat as the ManTech Program Lead and the NSRP Shipyard Delegate until October 2018. She will discuss both programs and explain how you can get involved. Her successor at GDEB will also be present to help facilitate any discussions.
