Startup Firms Showcase Cyber, Intell Analysis, Unmanned Tech Projects at DoD’s Innovation Hub

big dataFive companies presented multiple technology projects to Defense Secretary Ashton Carter and other Defense Department officials during an event held at the Defense Innovation Unit Experimental facility in Silicon Valley last week, DoD News reported Friday.

Cheryl Pellerin writes George Duchak, director of the DIUx organization, said entrepreneurs pitched their cybersecurity, intelligence analysis and unmanned technologies during the showcase program.

“Just as we’ve worked hard to introduce entrepreneurs in the Silicon Valley to DoD and opportunities to work more closely together, we’ve worked equally hard to contextualize what we’ve learned here for the Pentagon’s senior leaders,” Duchak noted.

Carter visited the DIUx office last week as part of his West Coast tour to promote collaboration between DoD and the technology sector.

Featured projects at the event include dynamic network mapping, micro-virtualization for endpoint protection, solar energy-powered unmanned maritime system, automated textual analysis, lean startup methodology and aerial and terrestrial mesh networks, Pellerin reports.
