NSWC Dahlgren-Issued OTA Presented at Recent Industry Event

Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division issued an other transaction agreement with the Naval Surface Technology and Innovation Consortium in June to fortify government-industry collaboration.

NSTIC presented the Naval Surface Technology and Innovation OTA at an industry event in Fredericksburg, Va., gathering together members of industry, government and academia, Naval Sea Systems Command said Wednesday.

"NSWC Dahlgren has a continuing, significant demand for innovative prototype projects directly relevant to weapons or weapon systems that involve advanced concept demonstrations, risk reduction prototyping, technology demonstrations, and development of pre-production prototypes," said John Fiore, technical director of NSWCDD.

He said relying on the traditional community of defense contractors would limit opportunities to gain technologies that support naval mission effectiveness across multiple aspects.

“The use of this OTA allows for non-competitive follow-on opportunities to a prototype agreement that was competitively awarded and successfully completed,” said Capt. Casey Plew, commanding officer at NSWCDD.

Representatives from industry firms, nonprofits and academic institutions compose NSTIC and work together towards the improvement and delivery of naval technologies.

The Enhanced Polar System Recapitalization program would deliver eXtended Data Rate payloads that would operate in the region until USAF gets access to polar variants of protected and evolved satcom technology in the 2030s, Los Angeles AF Base said Monday.
