Independent Research & Development
Technology Interchange Meeting: 18-22 November 2019

Mark your calendars!

Don’t miss the opportunity to meet with the Department of Defense’s team of Space experts in November 2019!

During the week of 18-22 November 2019, the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Space Community of Interest (CoI) intends to sponsor the 2019 Space Independent Research and Development (IR&D) Technology Interchange Meeting (TIM) at Kirtland AFB in Albuquerque, NM. The invitation is open to all industry IR&D participants, including large and small businesses, as well as academia.

This engagement has broad goals to increase awareness, stimulate collaboration, and seek alignment between industry’s IR&D innovation portfolios and DoD’s high-priority science and technology needs and corresponding acquisition sustainment roadmaps. Space Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from the DoD are expected to participate.

The 2019 Space CoI IR&D TIM will address the following areas of significant interest to DoD:
