The Naval Shipbuilding and Advanced Manufacturing Center (NSAM) is a Navy ManTech Center of Excellence, chartered by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) to develop advanced manufacturing technologies and deploy them in the U.S. defense industrial base. NSAM’s primary goal is to fund projects that drive manufacturing improvements and ultimately reduce the cost and time required to build and repair Navy platforms.


  • National in scope
  • Focused on Navy platforms
  • Projects are identified through industry pull
  • Projects are selected after obtaining input from Navy Program Offices
  • Employs a contracting process that is quick and flexible
  • Rapid implementation
