DOD Seeks to Strengthen U.S. Supply Chain for Turbine Engines

Partnership intended to provide for the manufacture of key components for military jets.

The Department of Defense has partnered with Selmet, Inc. through the Office of Industrial Base Policy to facilitate the production of titanium castings that are essential for F-15, F-16, F-22, and F-35 aircraft turbine engines. The $1.31 million agreement has been authorized under the Defense Production Act and funded by the Additional Ukraine Supplemental Appropriations Act.

“Resiliency at all points in our defense industrial base is required to ensure the operational availability of the platforms on which our warfighters depend,” said Assistant Secretary of Defense for Industrial Base Policy Laura Taylor-Kale. “Upstream supporting activities are just as important as the manufacturing of final products.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Assistant Secretary Taylor-Kale as she heads the Office of Industrial Base Policy.
  • For Secretary Lloyd Austin to seek God’s guidance as he leads the Defense Department.
  • For U.S. military officials as they work to strengthen the domestic manufacturing supply chain.
