S2MARTS Research

October XCel Series

Bridging the Gap between R&D and Prototyping

Wednesday, October 27 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET

Be the first to learn about the new OTA that will change the face of innovation.

In the coming weeks we will be introducing S2MARTS Research - a groundbreaking program uniquely situated under the existing S2MARTS agreement that was created by NSWC, Crane Division to help connect research and prototyping. 

Special guests Shaun Davis, NSWC Crane S2MARTS Program Manager, and Jordan Schnarr, Strategic Missions Contracts Division Director/Contracting & Agreements Officer, NSWC Crane, will provide insights on:

  • What S2MARTS Research is
  • How this award marks a huge milestone for the S2MARTS OTA and The Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC), Crane Division, as they now offer both U.S.C. 2371 and U.S.C. 2371b authorities under one OTA framework
  • How the OTA offers the government a higher ROI and success rate
  • How innovators in the ecosystem can support these new projects in an academic or research focused capacity
