National Security Technology Accelerator

Technology at the Speed of Mission

    The technology and innovation gap between public and private sectors is widening. Today the ability of the U.S. national security community to maintain technological superiority is dependent on capturing public sector technologies and innovation through more efficient methods and procedures that better align commercial innovations and interests with emerging national security needs. The rapidly changing technology environment requires a new model to address these new realities.


    Established in 2013, the National Security Technology Accelerator (NSTXL) is a partnership between government and the innovation ecosystem. Achieving the objectives of national security requires a partnership between entities that fundamentally understand the technology innovation landscape, bring together established networks integrated across broad market sectors, and whose interests and metrics are aligned to achieve rapid technology discovery, prototyping and acquisition.
