The Capital Tech Bridge encompasses a vibrant innovation ecosystem aligned with Navy and Marine Corps interests. Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock Division, in partnership with Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division, Naval Surface Warfare Center Indian Head EOD Technology Division, Naval Research Laboratory and the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory will connect the warfighter with this innovation ecosystem enabling partnerships with industry, academia, and government agencies to solve complex problems.

The goal of the Capital Tech Bridge is to facilitate large scale industry & academic engagement through events in easily accessible, off-base facilities in the National Capital Region (NCR). Drawing on the talents of the NCR industrial base, academia, and government partners, the Capital Tech Bridge will enable research and development partnerships, accelerate technology development and delivery to the warfighter, connect to Navy/USMC programs for requirements & user feedback, develop dual-use technologies to meet national defense needs, enhance the regional economic strength with novel commercial products, and develop the next generation of STEM professionals.
