Established in 2000 as the Navy’s Center of Excellence for composites manufacturing technology, CMTC is one of seven Centers of Excellence that serve as technology resources for the Office of Naval Research (ONR) under the Navy Manufacturing Technology Program (ManTech).

The Centers are focal points for the development of manufacturing processes and equipment in a collaborative environment with industry, academia, and the Navy industrial facilities and laboratories.
