DoD seeks innovative ideas from innovative companies

Posted on June 5, 2009. Filed under: innovation, research & development, science & technology | Tags: | is a U.S. Department of Defense “new idea portal”, set up to elicit good ideas for products, services, prototypes, and concepts that advance the military’s missions.   The site promises an initial response in less than 30 days to ideas submitted through the portal.  Ideas are protected from disclosure as provided for in law; details can be found at the website.  The intent is to encourage entrepreneurs and organizations who have never considered doing business with DoD to participate.

This seems to be a new portal, and currently is accepting ideas in only one theme area – battlefield forensics.  New themes are supposed to be added in the future, and  interested parties can join an email list to be alerted to new themes.

The potentially really good thing about this portal is the possibility of funding decisions being made quickly.  That would be an excellent service. –nks
