Natick S&T Board
The members of the Natick Soldier Research, Development & Engineering Center/Natick Soldier Systems Center Science and Technology Board ("STB") seek to increase and enhance the mission capabilities and military relevance of the Natick Soldier Research, Development & Engineering Center and other DoD partner organizations at the Natick Soldiers Systems Center (collectively, the "Center") and to preserve, promote, and enhance the Center as one of the country's preeminent military, academic, and industrial technology complexes.
Areas of Focus
Among the areas of focus of the STB are the following:
- To formalize public/private relationships and increase awareness in the industrial, academic, and defense communities of the Center's science and technology capabilities and challenges by combining government expertise, assets, and resources with complementary contributions from the private sector, and state and local governments. Such relationships will serve to leverage resources, create new assets, and increase the value of existing assets at the Center.
- To provide strategic focus and clear direction for the region's unique and significant capabilities in select technologies which align with the interests of the United States Army and the Center.
- To serve as the catalyst that facilitates the transfer of technology by supporting both the development of commercial technologies to meet the needs of the Army (Spin-In) and the commercialization of resident Army technologies (Spin-Out).
