Completed Projects

By leveraging the experience of our engineers and technicians with the technical resources from best-in-class sources made up of the country’s most renowned corporations and academic institutions, the EMPF continues to meet goals of high value to the US Navy, the DoD and industry at large.

The projects managed by the EMPF, under the guidance of ACI, yield positive benefits by applying the latest concepts and technologies, and by focusing on area like: COTS (Components off the Shelf) integration, cost reduction, ruggedization, miniaturization, obsolescence mitigation, and refining manufacturing methods and processes. Innovations derived from these projects are of great benefit to the US Navy in terms of improved weapons systems performance, increased life spans of components and maintenance of legacy systems.

Follow the links listed here to see descriptions of some past projects completed by the EMPF. If you have any questions regarding some of the methods that were used to bring these projects to completion, please email us at info@empf.org.
