Let’s Collaborate

The EMPF maximizes its technology impact through the use of its successful national R&D and technical transfer/deployment networks who work with a variety of industrial, academic, and government organizations. This structure enables the EMPF to highly leverage these existing technical relationships to deliver innovations to a broad base; provide the key link to the factory floor; and, to systematically identify new MANTECH requirements for the benefit of DoD.

Office of Naval Research logo

The Office of Naval Research


The Office of Naval Research coordinates, executes, and promotes the science and technology programs of the United States Navy and Marine Corps through schools, universities, government laboratories, and nonprofit and for-profit organizations. It provides technical advice to the Chief of Naval Operations and the Secretary of the Navy and works with industry to improve technology manufacturing processes.

Navy ManTech logo

Navy ManTech Program


Managed by the Office of Naval Research (ONR), the Navy ManTech Program provides a mechanism for the development of enabling manufacturing technology and for implementation of this technology for the production, repair, and maintenance of Navy weapon systems to support the fleet. The program is aimed at achieving affordability in weapon systems acquisition by inserting manufacturing process solutions early in the design phase to reduce life-cycle costs, improve schedules, and ensure quality.

The ManTech Program, by providing seed funding for the development of moderate to high-risk process and equipment technology, permits contractors to upgrade their manufacturing capabilities. Working with defense contractors, the Naval Research Enterprise, and academia, the Navy ManTech Program promotes the development of improved processes and equipment, successful implementation on the factory floor for the affordable production of defense materiel, and the rapid transition to the fleet to support Navy war fighters. It is structured to provide maximum dissemination of the results of manufacturing technology projects and to promote early implementation to strengthen the defense industrial base.

US Navy Logo

U.S. Navy


The mission of the U.S. Navy is to maintain, train and equip combat-ready Naval forces capable of winning wars, deterring aggression and maintaining freedom of the seas.

The U.S. Navy is America’s forward deployed force and a major deterrent to aggression around the world. Our carriers are stationed in hotspots around the globe — in the Far East, in the Persian Gulf, and in the Mediterranean Sea — ready to provide a quick response to any crisis world-wide.

US Department of Defense Logo

U.S. Department of Defense


The Army, Navy, and Marine Corps were established in 1775, in concurrence with the American Revolution. The War Department was established in 1789, and was the precursor to what is now the Department of Defense. Congress, in 1947, established a civilian, Cabinet-level Secretary of Defense to oversee an also newly created National Military Establishment. The U.S. Air Force was also created, along with a new Department of the Air Force. The War Department was converted to the Department of the Army. Finally, the three services, Army, Navy, and Air Force, were placed under the direct control of the new Secretary of Defense.

In 1949, an amendment to the Act consolidated further the national defense structure, creating what we now know as the Department of Defense, and withdrawing cabinet-level status for the three Service secretaries.

The Defense Department manages a comprehensive inventory of installations and facilities to ensure our nation has all the assets necessary to keep Americans safe. The Department’s physical plant is huge by any standard, consisting of more than 600,000 individual buildings and structures located at more than 6,000 different locations or sites. When all sites are added together, the Department utilizes over 30 million acres of land.

Today we have employees located in more than 146 countries; some 473,881 troops and civilians are overseas both afloat and ashore. We operate in every time zone and in every climate.

Our bottom line: To provide the military forces needed to deter war and to protect the security of the United States. Everything we do supports that primary mission. Nothing less is acceptable to us, or to the American people.

US Marine Corps Logo

The United States Marine Corps


The call “Send in the Marines!” has been sounded more than 200 times since the end of World War II, an average of once every 90 days. In 1999 alone, Marines provided humanitarian assistance to earthquake victims in Turkey, were among the first U.S. ground troops to enter Kosovo and formed the core of U.S. peacekeeping efforts in East Timor.

US Army Logo

The United States Army


Since its birth on 14 June 1775-over a year before the Declaration of Independence-the United States Army has played a vital role in the growth and development of the American nation. It won the new Republic’s independence in an arduous eight-year struggle against Great Britain, at times providing the lone symbol of nationhood around which patriots could rally. During the Civil War it preserved the Union through four years of bitter conflict that turned brother against brother. It has repeatedly defended the United States against external threats, from the “second war of independence” with Great Britain in 1812 through the crusades that finally rid the world of the specters of Nazi totalitarianism, Japanese imperialism, and world communism. The defense of the nation has always been the Army’s primary mission but, as this pamphlet shows, not its only one. From the beginning the Army has also been involved with internal improvements, natural disaster relief, economic assistance, domestic order, and a host of other contingencies. Although these missions may not have always been those it would have chosen for itself, our Army has drawn great satisfaction from knowing that when the nation was in need, it answered the call.

USSOCOM organizes, trains, and equips special operations forces provided to Geographic Combatant Commanders, American Ambassadors and their country teams.

United States Air Force Logo

United States Air Force


The Air Force provides America a rapid, flexible, and when necessary, a lethal air and space capability. It can deliver forces anywhere in the world in less than 48 hours. It routinely participates in peacekeeping, humanitarian, and aeromedical evacuation missions and is actively patrolling the skies above Iraq and Bosnia. Air Force crews annually fly missions into all but five nations of the world.

United States Department of Energy Logo

The Department of Energy’s overreaching mission is to advance the national, economic and energy security of the united states; to promote scientific and technological innovation in support of that mission; and to ensure the environmental cleanup of the national nuclear weapons complex.

United States Environmental Protection Agency Logo

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency


The mission of the Environmental Protection Agency is to protect human health and the environment. Since 1970, EPA has been working for a cleaner, healthier environment for the American people.

EPA employs 18,000 people across the country, including our headquarters offices in Washington, DC, 10 regional offices, and more than a dozen labs. Our staff are highly educated and technically trained; more than half are engineers, scientists, and policy analysts. In addition, a large number of employees are legal, public affairs, financial, information management and computer specialists. EPA is led by the Administrator, who is appointed by the President of the United States.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Logo



Since its inception in 1958, NASA has accomplished many great scientific and technological feats in air and space. NASA technology also has been adapted for many nonaerospace uses by the private sector. NASA remains a leading force in scientific research and in stimulating public interest in aerospace exploration, as well as science and technology in general. Perhaps more importantly, our exploration of space has taught us to view Earth, ourselves, and the universe in a new way. While the tremendous technical and scientific accomplishments of NASA demonstrate vividly that humans can achieve previously inconceivable feats, we also are humbled by the realization that Earth is just a tiny “blue marble” in the cosmos.
