Welcome - Naval Innovation Center
Secretary of the Navy, Carlos Del Toro announces the Naval Innovation Center at NPS
“I am also directing the creation of a Navy Innovation Center at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California – right in the heart of our nation’s leading technology corridor. This will serve as a premier military education facility tailored to innovation and experimentation, serving as a technology resource for Navy and Marine Corps warfighting development commands, as well as a go-to partner of the defense industrial base, the technology sector, and academia...”
Our innovation cycle is grounded in a 5-step process that is being scaled across DoD. At NPS, our operationally experienced students inform the innovation process. The Naval Warfare Studies Institute at NPS works with the fleet to identify and curate problems in collaboration with the new NPS Office of Research and Innovation (OR&I). Together with partners from industry, NPS innovation moves research concepts from idea to impact.
