Senior Director Strategy & Technology
Huntington Ingalls Industries greatly values the membership in UTIC because it allows us to do two things well. First it allows us a collaborative environment with other large and small businesses focused on the undersea theme of UTIC. Secondly it provides us a knowledge of the innovation that is being sought after by the government allowing us to align our investments.

Vice President, DoD Business Development
The OTA has been a valuable resource for PURVIS to perform technology work outside of our standard contracts. We primarily have engineering services contracts rather than product research and development contracts. The OTA gave us a unique avenue to look at R&D, technology and product-oriented projects and to apply expertise to bring new capabilities to users. It has also provided us the opportunity to network and develop new partnerships for both the OTA and other opportunities.
Vice President, Strategy & Business Development,
General Dynamics Applied Physical Sciences
Given the critical nature of undersea warfare in the global security environment, it makes sense that the Navy would create an OTA focused on serving the Undersea Enterprise by more rapidly maturing and fielding undersea systems. As an undersea technology company, APS considered UTIC to be a perfect fit. We continue to find value in the collaboration facilitated by UTIC, both with government customers, and with industry partners.
Rite-Solutions understands that UTIC offers the Navy an opportunity to get capability to the warfighter faster through a non-traditional acquisition approach. We feel collaboration with UTIC is vital to meet this objective because it impacts the warfighter through innovative research, development, and learning to further undersea technologies. As a small non-traditional business we work with UTIC to help facilitate a fast, efficient and cost effective acquisition process.
