The Mid-Atlantic Tech Bridge (MATB) is the first of what we believe will be many Tech Bridges to formally tie the Operational Navy to the Science and Technology capabilities for the Navy and Marine Corps.

Commander 2nd Fleet, in partnership with the Naval Information Warfare Center Atlantic Hampton Roads Detachment, Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division Damneck Activity and Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock Division Norfolk Detachment, will connect warfighters with those who can provide agile technology solutions. Leveraging a connection to a robust ecosystem spanning well beyond the Commonwealth of Virginia, MATB will facilitate innovative technology solutions of interest to the region and the DoN. In the coming months, MATB will establish an off-base facility space for collaborative events; this will allow a low-barrier connection with Dept of the Navy people.
