Technology and R&D
Under its Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA), New Horizons Foundation is working directly with ARDEC in the transition of technologies. ARDEC is a preeminent national and international leader in research, development, engineering and production support for defense armament systems. ARDEC has partnered with NHF to accelerate the development and transition of new technologies for the Department of Defense.
The Department of Defense is the executive branch department of the federal government charged with coordinating and supervising all agencies and functions of the government concerned directly with national security and the U.S. Armed Forces. New Horizons Foundation has signed CRADAs with the DoD, giving the foundation access to any Army, Navy, Air Force or Marine research labs, including their people, resources and capabilities. The agreements between the DoD and NHF allow any company that wishes to work with NHF the power to access the labs through the NHF/DoD agreement.
