Seeking Innovative Maintenance and Repair Solutions for Industrial Technology Competition

There is a national Technology competition that is seeking innovative solutions for maintenance and sustainment operations. The competition is sponsored by the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) and aims to provide the Department of Defense (DOD) with new ways to streamline maintenance operations.

The 2024 Commercial Technologies for Maintenance Activities (CTMA) Technology Competition will highlight innovative technologies that enable more agile, effective, efficient, and affordable methods for maintaining high-value assets, as well as for enabling advancements in logistics and Business processes.
