Advanced Engineering & Manufacturing



CTC’s advanced engineering & manufacturing team consists of engineers and scientific experts with in-depth experience in materials, design, analysis, rapid prototyping, testing, and manufacturing. We integrate these resources at the appropriate phase in the product development life cycle, and employ a first-pass design philosophy to minimize design iterations. Our full-service solutions team combines traditional fundamentals with cutting-edge technologies to deliver innovative, customized solutions.
CTC has operated the Navy Metalworking Center (NMC) since 1988 when it was established as an Office of Naval Research (ONR) Manufacturing Technology (ManTech) Program Center of Excellence. NMC improves metalworking technologies used in the construction of U.S. Navy weapons systems. See the NMC website for a list of our technical success stories, which represent a broad range of metalworking and manufacturing advancements.
