About

One Defense is re-imagining the national security industry to better address the challenges of a changing world. Central to this vision is the role of technology in national defense. Our goal is to reduce friction between commercial technology and government customers in order to ensure development of state of the art solutions, avoid technologic surprise, and create a more secure world.

One Defense makes the most of our national investment – promoting security through transparent and cost effective ways of developing technology and doing business.
One Defense capitalizes on creativity, ingenuity, and innovation from every sector of the American economy to solve the “wicked” problems that threaten our security.
One Defense creates a sustainable defense economy that rapidly fields technical mission solutions without unnecessary costs and delays.

Background

One Defense was launched in response to the Technology Domain Awareness (TDA) initiative, sponsored by the Secretary of Defense to foster an expanded defense technology innovation community of practice that incorporates DOD stakeholders, traditional defense industry, the start-up and venture capital communities, and the academic research community. We have assembled a team of military, policy, and corporate leaders that understand operational requirements, the technology development process, and the business practices to meet the TDA vision.
