Passage of NDAA Bill Benefits Composites

January 06 2020

The American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) applauds the US Senate and House of Representatives for their passage of the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The NDAA authorizes defense and military spending for the fiscal year 2020.

Composites have long been used by the American military dating back to World War II. The passage of this NDAA is particularly momentous, as it includes more than $47 million in newly allocated funding specifically dedicated to development of composite materials and manufacturing technologies. This is in addition to expanded acquisitions in many programs that already rely heavily on composite technology.

In addition, the NDAA also includes a title known as the American Manufacturing Leadership Act (AMLA), which lays out a pathway to make federal funding and involvement with the Manufacturing USA Institutes network permanent. ACMA and many of the association's members are intimately involved with IACMI-The Composites Institute, one of the flagship institutes of Manufacturing USA. Enactment of AMLA is critical to the global competitiveness of American manufacturing, recognizing the massive investments foreign governments have made in their own domestic manufacturing sectors.
