More About This Type of Opportunity
OSD ManTech is working with each of its Manufacturing Innovation Institutes, leveraging their project call processes under current agreements, to assemble and review white papers that address dual-use applications that are responsive to specific needs of the Department of Defense (DoD) - and the domestic manufacturing industry. This call is just one opportunity. MxD members are able to access and participate in this and other project calls and manufacturing challenges.
