Hawaii Tech Bridge
The Navy has established the Hawaii Tech Bridge to leverage Hawaii’s innovation ecosystem to solve Navy and Marine Corps challenges. The Hawaii Tech Bridge offers a “bridge” for collaboration between the Department of Defense (DOD), State of Hawaii, private industry, non-profits, and academia. It is part of a network of regional Tech Bridge nodes distributed throughout the country and beyond, leveraging agile authorities and initiatives to “Get capabilities to the Fleet faster.”
