No alternative text description for this imageWaltham, MA – Boston Engineering Corporation is proud to announce that it received the Overall Award at the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) 2024 CTMA Technology Competition. This prestigious recognition was bestowed upon Boston Engineering for its groundbreaking Family of Sustainment Assisting Robotics (FOSAR) program, which promises to revolutionize maintenance and sustainment practices for the Navy and other stakeholders.

The FOSAR program aims to develop and demonstrate a suite of technologies under a unified architecture, providing users with a common interface and tools to significantly reduce maintenance and sustainment costs. These capabilities, developed in collaboration with multiple companies, include robotic systems, payloads and sensors, digital solution tools such as AR/VR/MR/XR, Logistics Internet of Things, and Exoskeleton technology. By incorporating interchangeable payloads, FOSAR enhances worker efficiency and increases weapon systems’ availability, ultimately improving operational readiness.

“We are thrilled to receive the Overall Award at the NCMS 2024 CTMA Technology Competition,” said Mark Smithers, Vice President and Chief Technical Officer of Boston Engineering. “This recognition reaffirms our commitment to innovation and our dedication to advancing technology to improve the way people live and work. The FOSAR program exemplifies our collaborative approach and our relentless pursuit of excellence in engineering.”

The criteria used to evaluate entries in the competition included Technical Maturity, Originality, Applicability, Transition Path, and other relevant factors related to maintenance across the Department of Defense and the Defense Logistics Agency. The judging panel, comprised of principals from the Joint Technology Exchange Group (JTEG), selected Boston Engineering as the Overall Award winner based on the program’s excellence in maintenance relevance, originality, technical maturity, cross-service applicability, and feasibility. Accompanying the award is a grant of $100,000 for Boston Engineering to continue technology development.

Boston Engineering extends its gratitude to NCMS and the JTEG for providing a platform to showcase innovative technologies that have the potential to transform maintenance and sustainment practices across the defense sector.
