ANTX is a distributed resource maintained for technical demonstration and field experimentation by the Naval Research and Development Establishment (NR&DE), conducted to assist the naval and joint force warfighter in maintaining a competitive technical advantage.
ANTX programs and events allow for collaboration between industry, academia, and government research and development organizations and provide an environment for warfighters to assess the potential utility of technical innovations before decisions are required on investment priorities.
The result is:
Acceleration of information exchange between technology providers and operational users
Reduction of risk in preparation for larger fleet exercises
Material and technology transitions
Inform future research and development actvities
Refined understanding of employment and use
Knowledge of barriers to implementation of technology
The ultimate goal of the Naval Research and Development Establishment (NR&DE) is the timely delivery of relevant and suitable capabilities to the Fleet. ANTX is intended to support this goal by establishing a venue to accelerate knowledge associated with technological enablers and force multipliers of needed capabilities. Accordingly, the program culminates with an opportunity for the Navy to smartly progress, invest, or divest from the capabilities demonstrated.
