Pentagon Reaches Out to Industry for Innovation Ideas

Reuters reports that “the Pentagon’s Strategic Capabilities Office plans to reach out to U.S. industry in about a month for ways to put existing weapons technologies to new uses as the department scrambles to maintain its competitive edge over Russia and China.”  

“‘We’re looking for things we can put our hands on today, go test today,’ said Will Roper, director of the SCO, or what he called the Pentagon’s ‘take risk’ office, said.”  

“This is the first time the office is broadly going out to industry for specific ideas on how to repurpose existing weapons, which could result in lucrative new contracts.”
