Upcoming TPP programs:
In our community:
Maryland Defense Network Brown Bag Lunch & Demo
Tuesday, April 24
Join us for a demo of the Maryland Defense Network, a database of defense reliance and supply chain networks of defense contractors. The Maryland Defense Network (MDN) is a program that will significantly enhance the ability of naval aviation program managers to identify companies and industry teams that have the skills, knowledge and technical background to help answer some of the most difficult questions facing our Navy today. Knowing where contract vehicles and teaming arrangements exist will help the government to reduce cycle time in new technology development.
