Supporting Technology for Defense Applications


At NJII, the Defense division is mobilized to identify, build, and implement innovative solutions that identify and operationalize advances in technology.  Using ideation sessions, NJII works with industry partners and the Department of Defense (DoD) to understand how new technology will be deployed and used.  NJII works to support program objectives by providing design capabilities, workforce training development and field test support.  The key outcomes are workforce development, improved protection of military personnel and critical assets, and improved efficiency of military operations.  

To achieve these outcomes, NJII aligns and advances emerging technologies to operationalize them, with a particular focus on advanced manufacturing, contested logistics, and AI/computer vision.  The programs implemented together have provided assurances for supply chain, solider and officer safety, utilities protection and natural resource preservation.

We have established private and public partnerships with government agencies to build, test, and prototype solutions to support defense applications.  These highly collaborative relationships drive agile innovation and for next generation problem solving.

When we have different groups of experts cross collaborating and sharing ideas and taking those and running with them what we end up with is a powerful example of one of those situations where the sum of all the pieces is far better than the individual parts.

Technology is growing at a pace way faster than any single individual or company or even team of people within a company can keep track of so having a consortium of companies that come together to brainstorm and answer questions is invaluable.

This is needs-based research so it starts with identifying a problem we need to solve and then we put together an appropriate team of industry, academics and government to come up with truly innovative solutions.
