What is Title III?

The Title III Program is a government-funded venture that aides manufacturers who specialize in materials used for defense applications.

Production capabilities that would otherwise be inadequate are transformed to support the material requirements of defense programs in a timely and affordable manner. Title III focuses on materials and components that could be used in a broad spectrum of defense systems. The direct and indirect benefits to defense programs resulting from Title III initiatives are substantial. Moreover, Title III projects create numerous economic and technological benefits for domestic industries and consumers.
