This 2011 Commercial Technologies for Maintenance Activities (CTMA) Symposium is an annual meeting with about 200 attendees associated with maintenance and repair in the Department of Defense (DoD). Attendees are an equal mix from commercial industry and the depot/repair community.
The symposium presents DoD maintenance and repair needs requiring new technology solutions and commercial technologies that could benefit the DoD maintenance community.
At the plenary sessions technical briefs are presented from the higher levels within the DoD to outline the overall needs within each of the services and from those a bit closer to actual maintenance operations about how they are trying to improve their particular facilities.
NCMS is committed to helping our members create innovative technology solutions to meet the needs of the DoD and warfighter.
