Northeast Tech Bridge

The Northeast Tech Bridge, directed by Julie Kallfelz (pictured, at right), is based at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) Division Newport in Rhode Island. The Northeast Tech Bridge connects industry, small business, academic institutions, research organizations, as well as state and local government in the region to accelerate the development and transition of solutions to the fleet.

Our location allows us to take advantage of the region's highly integrated maritime and defense economy that encompasses manufacturing and research expertise in technological areas including:

  • defense-related ship and submarine building and servicing
  • autonomous and robotic undersea vehicles
  • marine materials and material behavior
  • ocean, coastal and bio-inspired sciences and engineering

The Northeast Tech Bridge has Partnership Intermediary Agreements (PIA) with our non-profit partners 401 Tech Bridge, which is based at the University of Rhode Island Research Foundation (URIRF), and with SENEDIA.
