The Hacking for Defense (H4D) Program transitions academic technologies from the lab to the marketplace and transitions emerging technology products into defense capabilities. The H4D Program leverages its deep defense networks to align cutting-edge technology and products with critical national security challenges. The H4D Program also serves as a forum for gathering government personnel (e.g. operators, engineers, researchers, and scientists), industry personnel (e.g. entrepreneurs, innovators, companies), and university academics to collaborate on solving the nation’s toughest challenges.
