Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University –

As a pioneering organization for transformative, interdisciplinary research, Virginia Polytechnic and State University’s (Virginia Tech’s) Institute for Critical Technology and Applied Science (ICTAS) seeks to develop advanced technological solutions to fulfill the future needs of national security. Drawing on a wealth of diverse resources, Virginia Tech leadership aims to seize the opportunity to make critical contributions to our national defense through the conduct of contract research. ICTAS has established The Virginia Tech Center for Naval Systems (CNavS) in support of the core initiative to develop, enable, expand, and execute contract research. This will centralize Department of Defense sponsored research activity while furthering the ICTAS mission and enabling a sustainable future for society through national defense support.
