The Science & Engineering Technology (S&ET) Division's Executive Breakfast Series provides a forum for government, industry and academic collaboration related to science and engineering technology advancements in the defense arena.

May's S&ET Executive Breakfast will feature remarks by Dr. Jason Jouet, Deputy Director, Manufacturing Technology in the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Manufacturing & Industrial Base Policy, who will discuss the DoD Manufacturing Technology program. 

For over 60 years, the Department's investment mechanism for staying at the forefront of defense‐essential manufacturing capabilities has been the DoD Manufacturing Technology program (ManTech). The program reduces acquisition and total ownership costs by developing, maturing, and transitioning key manufacturing technologies. The DoD ManTech program is comprised of individual component ManTech programs in the Departments of Army, Navy, Air Force, the Missile Defense Agency, the Defense Logistics Agency, and the Defense-wide Manufacturing Science & Technology Program managed by the Secretary of Defense.  ManTech touches all aspects of military technology and, with the new Manufacturing USA Innovation Institutes, is pioneering manufacturing technology in defense critical technology sectors.  A brief overview of the DoD ManTech program including the DoD Manufacturing USA Institutes will be presented.  

Dr. Jouet's biography can be found here.


The NDIA has a policy of strict compliance with federal and state antitrust laws. The antitrust laws prohibit competitors from engaging in actions that could result in an unreasonable restraint of trade. Consequently, NDIA members must avoid discussing certain topics when they are together – both at formal association membership, board, committee, and other meetings and in informal contacts with other industry members: prices, fees, rates, profit margins, or other terms or conditions of sale (including allowances, credit terms, and warranties); allocation of markets or customers or division of territories; or refusals to deal with or boycotts of suppliers, customers or other third parties, or topics that may lead participants not to deal with a particular supplier, customer or third party.
