In FY21, NIWC Atlantic transitioned 9 successful Information Warfare Research Project (IWRP) Consortium OTA prototypes into production awards with nontraditional IWRP Consortium members leading five of those efforts. Since September 2020, NIWC Atlantic has transitioned a total of 13 prototypes into production awards with a ceiling value over $636M, capitalizing on the streamlined process of OTAs to move through prototyping directly into production.

Grey Matters Defense Solutions was able to provide a successful prototype, which led to a follow on Other Transaction Authority Production (OTP) award. Grey Matters Defense Solutions, LLC, a non-traditional small business, was awarded a $45M OTP to transition their data warehousing and business intelligence solution into production. The consortium model enabled the federal government to reach innovative solutions from a nontraditional partner and provide a viable solution addressing immediate information warfare needs of the Naval services.
