What is TRIAD?
Technology Requirements & Innovation Awareness Days
The TRIAD Program provides education, coaching and opportunity identification to Companies looking to find ways to improve communication with The Department of Defence (DoD) & other Federal Agencies to secure contracts and/or grant funding.
At TRIAD events, companies will pitch their innovations directly to U.S. Combatant Commands Science & Technology Scouts who are tasked with finding solutions to the needs of the U.S. Warfighter and socializing those solutions with decision-makers in government agencies.
TRIAD events also provide learning opportunities through Information Sessions offered by participating Scouts and representatives of Small Business Development Centers, Manufacturing Extension Partnerships, and Procurement Technical Assistance Centers which offer support programs for companies who want to sell to federal agencies.
