Mandatory White Paper due March 6, 2020.

The objective of the Manufacturing Science (ManScience) program is to support fundamental scientific research to facilitate or enable the advancement/development of manufacturing technologies for Naval components. Research proposals are encouraged to include a modeling component to help direct the research. The focus of the Manufacturing Science program is on Naval manufacturing, preference will be given to Naval-unique or Naval-centric topics. This program has three primary potential focus areas:

  • Fundamental research programs needed to support significant advances in current Naval manufacturing technologies,
  • Fundamental research programs supporting new or developing Naval manufacturing technologies, or
  • Fundamental research programs to design/optimize the materials used in Naval manufacturing technologies
