The Undersea Technology Innovation Consortium (UTIC) welcomes organizations to become members of the growing national community of technology practitioners who are part of the rich undersea and maritime technology domain responding to the needs of national security and defense. UTIC members work collaboratively with the US Government to develop and transition innovative undersea and maritime technologies to meet critical needs of our country, our allies and most importantly the men and women who defend our nation.

The  Consortium represents a united undersea and maritime industry voice, breaking down barriers to growth by identifying and integrating undersea and maritime technology resources and opportunities, and providing the environment to collaborate on innovative solutions. Our strong and cohesive undersea and maritime community provides Consortium members the opportunity to identify and advance technologies that can rapidly and affordably integrate into government mission areas. This ultimately results in the innovative growth of the domain, establishing our maritime and undersea members as a recognized national resource, and enhancing long term prospects for continued growth and vitality of our national undersea and maritime technology community.

The Consortium welcomes academia, large and small businesses including traditional or non-traditional defense contractors, and not-for-profit entities.  Through the Consortium our members pursue and perform R&D prototyping efforts in undersea and maritime technology areas cited in NUWC’s Other Transaction Authority (OTA) Agreement for Undersea Technology Innovation.  Together we coalesce, strengthen and grow the undersea and maritime technology domain, resulting in expanded business opportunities with current customers as well as new market potential with current and future government customers.
