Northeast Tech Bridge Logo

The Navy Tech Bridge activity for the Northeast is coordinated at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center Division, Newport (NUWCDIVNPT) . Polaris Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), a statewide nonprofit organization, is leading the 401 Tech Bridge, and is the Navy's partnership intermediary. The 401 Tech Bridge is the nucleus of the Northeast Region Tech Bridge, establishing best practices for public/private partnerships that support and focus on the businesses and economies of the region. In this capacity, the 401 Tech Bridge has a goal of accelerating concept to prototype to commercial scale and is supported by the Office of Naval Research, the National Institute of Standards and Technology Manufacturing Extension Partnership award program, the Rhode Island Innovation Campus, network matching grants and private funding.
