A two-day marketplace where regional technology capabilities, emerging solutions, and regional capacity are showcased to Naval leaders within the NRE, Fleet, and Force along with pre-events to help condition and pre-qualify companies and their innovations. Naval, industry, and regional leaders will quickly begin the execution of discovered opportunities together.
CATAPULT is a first of its kind event. Department of The Navy is making serious efforts to minimize the time it takes to bring a solution from discovery to deployment. This begins with open communication to the providers, like you. At the CATAPULT event you will be able to speak directly with subject matter experts from the Department of the Navy.
The “Expo” component provides an exhibit space for up to 150 exhibitors: (a) regional small tech firms, larger firms offering sustainment capabilities, and universities’ innovation centers; and (b) the office of Naval research and other Naval organizations. Expo exhibitors will align closely with one or more of the science/technology priorities established in the new “Naval R&D Framework”.
