The mission of Naval Surface Warfare Center, Indian Head Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technology Division (NSWC IHEODTD) , as defined by Congress, enables Indian Head Division to work with the U.S. maritime industry, academia, state and local governments and private industry. Two principal options are available for establishing an alliance with Indian Head Division. Work may be done via:

  • Cooperative Research And Development Agreement (CRADA)
  • Work For Private Party Agreement.

These agreements allow industry and academia to respond effectively to DoD and other Government acquisition programs and participate in dual-use and commercial activities of the Division.

NSWC IHEODTD has diversified and unique research, testing, modeling and simulation capabilities, and computer software that both industry and academia have long expressed an interest in and have often used in their work. Establishing an alliance with NSWC IHEODTD through these agreements provides industry and academia ready access to Indian Head Division's facilities and capabilities. The cost of entering into an agreement with NSWC IHEODTD is negotiated before commitment to an agreement. An agreement may be fixed price and scheduled to meet individual needs.
