The Undersea Technology Innovation Consortium (UTIC) was established to identify and unify national resources to more fully leverage the concentration, breadth and depth of technologies engaged across the undersea and maritime technology domain. UTIC is a national consortium of members - manufacturers, small companies, large contractors, suppliers, academia, non-profits, and non-traditional technology companies, who wish to work collaboratively with the US Government to develop undersea and maritime technologies for challenges related to defense, security and protection.  UTIC represents the great wealth of skill, talent and technologies that are or wish to be engaged in this specialized, highly complex environment.

UTIC leverages recognition and standing as a national resource in undersea and maritime technology, and facilitates cooperation and collaboration among the many participants in this technical community. We utilize the connectivity and reach across the wide variety of subject matter experts to encourage and enable innovation to happen - faster and easier.  Together, we represent and access the best technologies to solve problems and develop solutions that achieve and maintain an international competitive edge in undersea and maritime defense technologies.

"Between our geographic advantage and the tremendous public and private resources we already possess in the national security and defense realms, Rhode Island is perfectly positioned to emerge as a leader in undersea technology and innovation."
Congressman Jim Langevin
Senior member of the House Armed Services Committee
who sits on the Seapower and Projection Forces subcommittee
"As the Brookings report noted, our maritime sector is one of the Rhode Island economy’s true strengths, a competitive advantage, and an industry growth area that we should continue to invest in...The Undersea Technology Innovation Center is an exciting and very promising development for Rhode Island defense industry employers and the prospect of creating high-value, high-wage STEM jobs.”
”Gina M. Raimondo“
Governor of Rhode Island
“I want to ensure Rhode Island remains at the forefront of undersea technology and this new center has the potential to bring top naval suppliers together with academic and government leaders to develop cutting-edge capabilities, concepts, and technologies for our forces. The Undersea Technology Innovation Center can also give Rhode Island companies a platform to collaborate and showcase their work,”
U.S. Senator Jack Reed
Ranking Member of the Senate Armed Services Committee
“There could be no better place than the Ocean State to host a national hub for the development of cutting-edge undersea technology. Thanks to SENEDIA and its Rhode Island partners for their commitment to excellence in this area. Your work will keep Rhode Island at the forefront of maritime innovation."
U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse
