FATHOMWERX is a public-private consortium and resource for technological innovation that fuses civilian companies, academia, and other nontraditional Department of Defense (DoD) partners together to work on the most challenging problems in the port and maritime domains.
Our dynamic platform is designed to create a high rate of return for all participants. Through the promotion of divergent thought, neutral facilitation, and the use of our growing ecosystem, our goal is to bring the right minds together to solve challenging problems.
To create and maintain a platform to accelerate the delivery of innovative capabilities to the Department of Defense in both port and maritime environments.
To facilitate capability refinement through community, exploration, experimentation, and assessment of promising technology.
FATHOMWERX aims to: deliver capabilities to end-users expeditiously; exploit proven techniques and methods; take risks and manage them; and keep domain experts involved throughout the process!
