NavalX Forum

The U.S. Navy’s NavalX program will be visiting Pittsburgh on Monday, February 12, as part of their effort to identity relevant solutions from small business, start-ups and academia to address some of the Navy’s most pressing challenges and operational needs.

NavalX is similar to other DOD organizations such as AFWERX, SPACEWERX and the Army Applications Lab.  Established in 2019, NavalX engages the small business community through several key programs and initiatives. As one example, the team at Naval X manages the Navy’s Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) program, which plays a key role in advancing dual-use and other critical technologies.   Consisting of nearly $300 million in annual awards, the SBIR program helps to address major challenges facing major Navy commands such as: NAVSEA, NAVAIR and the Marine Corps Systems Command

As we work to strengthen the region’s ties to the U.S Navy and Naval X, we hope that you can join us on February 12 to learn more about this important program and to find ways to help bring Pittsburgh innovations to our nation’s defense.
