The transfer of advanced technologies to the next vehicle or the next platform will be achieved by fostering an environment where Navy-relevant basic and applied research is being pulled into the design and manufacturing process by EB and the 600 naval-related companies in the supply chain as well as Navy labs NUWC and the Undersea Warfighting Development Center. While research is the core activity of the Institute, the most highly leveraged activity is the transition of technology advancements into major DoD acquisition programs. Effectively transitioning research results is critical to provide a significant and positive impact on naval capabilities. Members of the NIUVT are conducting basic and applied research hand in hand with industry partners to ensure that a path to transition exists.
