NEXUS Center AI Workshop
08 Dec 21
UMass Lowell Research Institute
Join representatives from the Department of Defense and the New England defense and innovation ecosystem for the opening event of the NEXUS Center for New Thinking in Defense at UMass Lowell Research Institute’s Northstar Campus.
The NEXUS Center for New Thinking in Defense is a uniquedefense innovation center located just outside Hanscom AirForce Base in Lincoln, MA, that connects a broad range of innovation and acquisition representatives from across the defense services with emerging technology companies building the next generation of dual-use technologies.
The NEXUS Center is operated by the UMass Lowell Research Institute at its Northstar Campus with support from the Innovation Institute at the MassTech Collaborative and MassDevelopment.
The AI and Autonomy Workshop aims to highlight the transformative power of AI and autonomy in achieving mission outcomes while fostering collaborative relationships between New England’s emerging tech companies and the Department of Defense.
07 DEC 21 - 08 DEC 21 | Autonomous Interoperability Standards Development Event
Autonomous Interoperability Standards Development Event
07 Dec 2021 – 09 Dec 2021
SOFWERX, in collaboration with USSOCOM’s Directorate of Science and Technology (S&T) and Naval Special Warfare (NSW), will host the Autonomous Interoperability Standards Development Event. In the Human Machine Teaming Aspects of Mission command, the objective is to bring together Special Operations Forces (SOF) representatives and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to assist USSOCOM in discerning the future of Autonomous Interoperability for Unmanned Air, Ground, Surface, and Underwater Systems (UxS). Focus areas will include but are not limited to sensors, communications, and platforms.
Why You Should Participate
The event will be a compelling opportunity for leading minds in Industry, Academia, Labs, and Government, as well as Subject Matter Experts in UxS and Manned-Unmanned Teaming (MUM-T) capabilities to ideate, collaborate, and improve the investment decision making for the future needs of SOF. USSOCOM has also used similar efforts to build key relationships with local and regional entrepreneurs and technology developers.
NSW has developed a vision for the future whose key elements include next generation UxS and autonomy solutions, and interoperable maritime and air assets. To do this effectively, NSW needs interoperability standards for the heterogeneous UxS platforms that they will use now and in the future. USSOCOM thus needs to develop and implement a set of interoperability standards that are not cumbersome, that are flexible, and that will support new technologies. They will also need to provide enough freedom for companies to use their creative approaches but with well-defined interfaces, messaging, communications, navigation, and control systems. Further, the backing of NSW and USSOCOM should provide an incentive for commercial players to rally around the new standards. This effort will support agility, wider government and commercial participation and ensure cost-effective development.

Tradewind OTA Short Course – Form DD2345
17 Nov 2021
We recognize that not every member of our Tradewind community fully understands the various registrations and/or attestations that might be required to not only compete for OTA-related opportunities, but to receive a project award under an OTA.
As a result, we’re offering our first-ever Tradewind OTA Short-Course. This is a simple webinar-style presentation on specific aspects of competing under an OTA for Prototype, like Tradewind, that offers you the information about a specific topic to enable you to understand the nature of the information, and to act with confidence!
Our first topic will be an information session about the Military Critical Technical Data Agreement (DD 2345). You’ve likely heard of these before but may not recognize its significance for your competitive eligibility. Don’t miss this important session as it’s highly likely forthcoming opportunities will require your organization to have a current DD2345 executed.
