Empowering Naval Innovation

Pioneering the Future of Naval Security Through Advanced Innovative Collaboration

Advancing Naval Solutions with the FLEETWERX Innovation Hub

FLEETWERX, a DEFENSEWERX hub, is a non-profit organization working in close collaboration with the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) and the Naval Fleet and Force.

Our mission is to streamline the discovery, engagement, and acceleration of inventive solutions that fortify naval operations. Serving as a nexus, FLEETWERX bridges the gap between NPS, industry experts, academia, and the naval community to address pressing challenges faced by naval end-users.

FLEETWERX enhances defense education and applied research while empowering NPS students and faculty to accelerate "ideas-to-impact" at greater speed and scale by cultivating an ecosystem of industry, academic and defense partners.

Join us in this pivotal endeavor to bolster our nation's naval security.
