Partnering with Naval Surface Warfare Center, Indian Head Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technology Division (NSWC IHEODTD)

Naval Surface Warfare Center, Indian Head Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technology Division (NSWC IHEODTD)  has entered into a series of partnerships with Universities. The rationale for these partnerships is to collaborate for the purpose of utilizing existing physical and intellectual capability more effectively. Such an initiative will expedite commercial assessment of federal intellectual property, as well as research and development by providing direct access to unique testing facilities and world-class scientists and engineers. Integral to this collaboration is the creation of new business processes on how best to preserve the U.S. defense and commercial industrial base in the energetics industry.

Partnerships with Universities

IHEODTD envisions a partnership whereby each organization would: Provide mutual support to extend capabilities for their respective programs, Participate jointly in proposals for increasing each university's technology-related capability on both the State and Federal level, Include investigators from each organization, either individually or in teams, so that they could pursue, within the peer review process, specific research projects, and Seek natural and non-conflicting spheres of interest among participants that allow for the shared use of facilities and infrastructure that will build on ongoing activities.
