The Applied Science and Technology Research Organization of America was formed in 2018, and is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, non-partisan Research Institute and Think Tank, dedicated to advancing the public interest through manufacturing technology and policy.

We convene key segments of the defense industrial base to advance qualification of key production tools. Our stakeholders are members at every tier of the supply chain, accelerating adoption of cutting-edge manufacturing capabilities.

We are doing this through federally sponsored contracting, cooperative research, and other transaction authorities.
