Hawaiʻi Tech Bridge

Techbridge logo

The Navy has established the Hawaiʻi Tech Bridge to leverage Hawaiʻi’s innovation ecosystem to solve Navy and Marine Corps challenges. The Hawaiʻi Tech Bridge offers a “bridge” for collaboration between the Department of Defense (DOD), State of Hawaiʻi, 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.”

HTDC has a Partner Intermediary Agreement (PIA) with the Hawaiʻi Tech Bridge to help carry out the mission.
