Scientists and engineers don’t just use technology, they invent it, further it, apply it. Ours have pioneered many of the most impressive achievements in intelligence, defense, and manufacturing dating back decades. And what they are doing today within HII NEXT—from AI to cyber—rivals anything we’ve done in the past.
Creating for the battlespace requires a steady presence of those who have been in the battlespace. The veteran presence at HII comprises more than a 1/3 of our workforce, spanning all branches of the military. There is no substitute for this experience.
Nothing should slow down the application of new technologies into the battlespace, least of all the necessary contracts and schedules. We have a proven track record of managing multiple engagements for a variety of commands, coordinating literally hundreds of discrete mission deliverables at once.
Solving for X: we’re constantly seeking the next solution to problems others may not yet be imagining. The ongoing IRAD initiatives undertaken within HII NEXT are fully funded by HII and are characterized by a focus on achieving rapid application within the battlespace.
Once you have the best minds working on a problem, you need to support them with the best equipment and opportunities for collaboration across the enterprise. Our technologists have access to a physical and virtual backbone that offers the fastest route from idea to prototype to delivery.
While our scientists and engineers are among the best in the world, we don’t have a monopoly on talent. That’s why we collaborate with the brightest minds in academia and think tanks across the country—all in service of speed to mission.
