Mark your calendars for an opportunity to meet with DOD’s top experts in Weapons Science & Technology (S&T) in early 2018! The Chair of the Defense Department’s COI for Weapons Technologies intends to have S&T engagements with Industry in the second of a two-part event in April 2018!

The Weapons COI Chair is expected to have Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from the services and other DoD Components including ASDR&E, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, and the Missile Defense Agency, will come together to enrich the technology dialogue with Industry.

Some of the many unique features of our DoD/Industry technology exchange model include opportunities for Industry to describe their IR&D effort, enabling the government SME team to caucus on salient points of significant interest, and providing time for giving real-time feedback to the company. This feedback is deliberate in addressing possible ways in furthering potential R&D partnering, using tools such as Cooperative R&D Agreements (CRADAs)), informing of relevant site visits/demos, referrals to other relevant DoD (DARPA, DTRA, etc.) and governmental agencies (NASA, etc.). These activities are ongoing and tend to prove to be beneficial to both Government and Industry.
