The Information Warfare Research Project (IWRP) Consortium is celebrating three years of collaboration to identify information warfare challenges, develop prototype technologies and ultimately deliver capabilities that mitigate information warfare threats. In its three years of supporting NAVWAR and Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Atlantic/Pacific, IWRP has grown to more than 800 members. Of those members, 77 percent are non-traditional organizations that don’t typically participate in federal R&D.
IWRP members are a powerful resource with diverse capabilities able to enhance the Department of Defense’s mission effectiveness in the field of information warfare. Since IWRP’s inception, members have been awarded 92 projects, totaling more than $230 million. Non-traditional members have received 65 percent of project awards.
Since 2018, with Advanced Technology International as its consortium manager, IWRP has engaged industry and academia to research and develop technologies in the areas of cyber warfare, cloud computing, and battlespace awareness, among others. ATI helps the government quickly acquire cutting-edge technologies by providing membership management, best-in-class security practices, single-point contracting and financial management, website and data management, event management, and training.
IWRP has established an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) to engage industry and academia to develop and mature technologies in the field of Information Warfare that enhance Navy and Marine Corps mission effectiveness. Join IWRP to access business and research opportunities focused on advancing information warfare research projects. IWRP is supported by Advanced Technology International.
