CTMA—DOD’s Sustainment Innovation Accelerator

Join us May 5-7 for the 2020 CTMA Partners Meeting at the Clubs at Quantico. This event will bring DOD, industry, and academia together to highlight weapon systems sustainment challenges, frame potential solutions, develop partnerships, learn about innovative existing and emerging technologies, and share lessons learned and best practices. The 2020 event will feature engaging speeches, interactive maintenance focused technology panels, and much more.

Participants will also have the opportunity to showcase their innovative technology solutions via exhibitors displays. The exhibitor displays are open to all NCMS members and non-members as well as government attendees. Your ideas and innovations will drive the next generation of maintenance technology and promote improved warfighter readiness.
