COMMERCIAL TECHNOLOGIES FOR MAINTENANCE ACTIVITIES
Commercial Technologies for Maintenance Activities (CTMA) program, created in 1998, is a joint Department of Defense/NCMS effort promoting collaborative technology development, demonstration, and transition within DoD. Its objective is to ensure American troops and their equipment are ready to face any situation, with the most up-to-date and best-maintained platforms and tools available.
The CTMA program has the ideal collaborative model for manufacturers, academia and DoD. We create relationships and opportunities, drive cutting edge R&D, and conduct industry intelligence from a unique perspective. Through partnerships, training, software, and business operations, CTMA can help achieve industry objectives while satisfying DoD needs through demonstration of new technologies prior to full deployment.
CTMA has managed over 248 government and industry projects achieving over $700M in cost savings which is projected to grow to almost $6B by 2023. A full list of CTMA projects can be found here.
WHAT CTMA OFFERS INDUSTRY AND THE DOD SUSTAINMENT COMMUNITY
Competitive Advantage: – With over 16 years of relationships with 90+ DoD entities including most DoD Depots, ALCs (Air Logistics Centers), FRCs (Fleet Readiness Centers), Naval Shipyards, DLA (Defense Logistics Agency), TARDEC/TACOM, and OSD-MPP (Office of Secretary of Defense – Maintenance Policy and Programs) among others, CTMA offers a tremendous competitive advantage for your technology deployment.
Neutral Facilitator: – NCMS forms and manages project teams to ensure compliance with guidelines and requirements of the consortium and serves as an advocate for the diffusion of technology solutions within the DoD maintenance operations.
Collaborative Business Model: – NCMS has the ability to quickly develop a project team. These teams are typically made up of technology providers and integrators, and a user who has defined a need. Teams may include a DoD maintenance depot and other interested parties who are driven to find commercialization solutions.
Cost Savings – technology or processes that reduce a historical cost
Cycle Time – reducing the total elapsed time from the beginning to the end of a process
Maintenance Avoidance – eliminating the need for a system to undergo maintenance repairs or upgrades
Legacy – any improvement in reliability and the maintenance of historical operations
Environmental – improvement of waste reduction, energy efficiency or re-usability of existing processes
Safety – protection for operators and maintainers of weapons systems
Maintenance Management – improving the systems and processes of maintenance activities
Reliability – the increased ability of a system or component to perform its required functions
Cooperative Agreement – Unparalleled contract vehicle to demonstrate commercial developments for application to solve issues prior to full acquisition.
Streamlined Process – Unique ability to cut through “red tape” and launch a new project within 45 days of receiving approval to proceed with a project or initiative.
Cross-Industry – Robust collaborative environment to perform R&D and deployment relevant to both industry and the military.
