Description

The U.S. Navy has enjoyed a technological and numbers lead over threats from China and Russia, but not anymore. New thinking matched with exquisite capabilities is needed, which Cold War era procurement institutions have struggled delivering. A new bridge to industry and startup companies working on cutting edge technologies is needed. In doing this, the Navy could also become the genesis for maturing new technologies rapidly with marketable potential—thereby sustaining a renewed and more vibrant military-commercial relationship. Could a market bridge between the Navy and industry provide the demand and regulatory environment conducive to produce the next “internet” or “microchip”—developments that served a military use but became integral to our modern economy?
