Enter Your Innovations in the 2021 CTMA Technology Competition 

The CTMA Technology Competition provides an opportunity for both commercial and government sources to showcase innovative ways of making maintenance and sustainment operations more agile, effective, efficient, and affordable. The review and selection process will be overseen by top DOD maintenance leaders, providing great exposure to the top six finalists as well as the two winners. 

Submissions are encouraged by the government, academia, and industry.  The submission period is now open. The deadline for submissions is Friday, October 1, 2021.  

The top six candidates will present their innovative solutions on December 8, 2021, via a virtual platform, to a collection of high-level DOD maintenance and sustainment personnel. During that event, the overall winner and the People’s Choice award winner will be named.  


NCMS will make available $100,000 in project support funding.  The overall award winner and the People’s Choice award winner will each receive $50,000 in funding for a selected DOD demonstration activity, to the extent permitted under the existing CTMA Cooperative Agreement.
