Virginia Tech and the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) signed a memorandum of understanding in Dahlgren, Va. designed to develop and expand a framework of cooperation that will benefit the university’s students and faculty in addition to Navy technology programs.
The agreement will enable a framework of cooperation between Virginia Tech and NSWCDD to develop mutually beneficial innovative research projects and activities.
In today’s information rich environment, it is critical that the Navy stay abreast of technology and understand the realm of the possible for the future. Today’s academic institutions are key in being able to do this.
Moreover, in the current fiscally constrained environments, it is important for the Navy and academic institutions to look for more synergistic ways to continue providing cutting edge technology to the warfighter with less funding using progressive relationships and agreements.
