The U.S. Army xTech Program, sponsored by the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology (ASA(ALT)), launched its first ever xTechSearch competition in 2018 to redefine the future of the Army, and how they can identify, award and accelerate transformative technology solutions. Since the program’s inception, it has been the driving force to bringing innovative technology solutions from small and non-traditional businesses to grow the Army and Department of Defense ecosystems to support Soldiers, filling mission gaps and solving critical challenges.
To date, the program has launched over 22 competitions and awarded over $17M in prize money and over $89M in contracts and agreements for non-defense businesses to form long-standing partnerships with the Army.
On behalf of the Joint Defense Manufacturing Technology Panel (JDMTP), and in coordination with ARCTOS, Army ManTech cordially invites you to the Defense Manufacturing Conference (DMC) 2022, in Tampa, Florida, December 5-8, 2022.
DMC is the nation’s annual forum for enhancing and leveraging the efforts of engineers, managers, technology leaders, scientists, and policy makers across the defense manufacturing industrial base. Leaders and manufacturing subject matter experts from government, industry, and academia exchange information and perspectives on defense manufacturing policies, strategic direction, best practices, funding opportunities, and the latest manufacturing innovations that will benefit our warfighters.
Attendees range from CEO- and Flag Officer/SES-level to working-level manufacturing-oriented engineers, scientists, and business practice/policy makers and include technology implementers, system designers and representatives of the warfighters. Typical attendance is over 1000, primarily government and industry participant with a smaller complement from academia.
