Contact: The Army xTech Program
The U.S. Army xTech Program, led by the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology (ASA(ALT)), launched its first ever xTechSearch competition in 2018 to redefine the future of our Soldiers, and how the Army can identify, award and accelerate transformative technology solutions. Since its inception, the program has been the driving force to incorporate innovative technology solutions from small and non-traditional businesses and entities, to grow the Army and Department of Defense ecosystems to support Soldiers, fill mission gaps and solve critical challenges. To date, the program has launched more than 25 competitions, awarded over $18M in cash prizes, and over $89M in follow-on contracts and agreements to form long-standing partnerships with the Army.
The xTech Program booth will showcase the 20 finalists from the xTechSearch 7 competition, where they will exhibit and demonstrate their technology concepts and capabilities addressing various challenge topics including, Advanced Materials, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML), Assured Position Navigation and Timing (PNT), Autonomous Platforms, Clean Energy Storage, Command Control and Communications, Cyber Security, Sensing, Signature Reduction, and more! Stop by to learn more about how these non-defense businesses are spurring the future of technology innovation for the Army through the xTech Program, and the upcoming opportunities that the xTech Program can offer.
