Why Matchmaking with DoD Prime Contractors & Aeronautical Agencies

The intent of this initiative is to act as a bridge between the DoD and Small Business Innovators/Manufacturers to meet requirements.

GOAL: To connect DoD & Aeronautical Agencies to American technology innovators/highly specialized manufacturers in a way that allows engineering/innovators to collaborate with their counterparts on the hard problems by discussing the new technology capabilities at the product level. These collaborations will take place primarily through matchmaking as a part of conference events that avoid some of the traditional pitfalls of typical matchmaking.
