Program Management

The NSAM Center is managed by a small staff that relies on a core group of professionals to provide focused expertise to help identify potential solutions, compare proposed projects with state-of-the-art/industry and validate the technology’s return on investment. The Center pursues technologies focused on improving the affordability of current Navy acquisition programs and in-service platforms. An extensive network of ‘on-demand’ industry, laboratory, academia and manufacturers sup-plements the NSAM staff and is called upon as necessary to provide additional, specific expertise.
