Industry & Academia
How NavalX works with industry and academia.
NavalX serves the Navy and Marine Corps as an innovation and agility cell, supporting and connecting initiatives across the Department of Defense. We connect teams with tools, training, and resources - enabling people to think differently and deliver more effective solutions to the warfighter.
NavalX operates out of Alexandria, VA and is led by Navy Captain Benjamin "Nut" Van Buskirk, under the operational guidance of Secretary Jay Stefany, the acting Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research Development and Acquisition.
Founded by Secretary James "Hondo" Geurts in 2019, when he was ASN RDA, NavalX is staffed by government civilians, Marines, Sailors and partners across the Department of Defense. We have innovation nodes across the world with 6 Centers for Adaptive Warfighting, 15 Tech Bridges and an online network of government, military, industry and academia partners.
