Robert Levinson, senior defense analyst at Bloomberg Government discusses the Army’s search for tech from non-traditional defense contractors and the Air Force’s pursuit of “Space Launch as a Service”


The Army has set out to find new tech to help support their mission. Under the Expeditionary Technology Search contest, the branch’s acquisition shop is looking for non-traditional defense contractors to bring their best work to the Pentagon. Interested companies and individuals have until the end of the month to submit their ideas for new Army tech. Robert Levinson, senior defense analyst at Bloomberg Government says that the Army is “casting a wide net.”   “It’s a very broad brush. They list a whole area of activity— everything from medical technology to helicopter technology, C4ISR, you name it. The Army basically said, ‘Here’s all the problems we’re working on, if you can name anything that helps us solve these problems.’ There really [are] no boundaries on this,” Levinson said. “There aren’t too many technologies that couldn’t fit into one of the buckets that the Army listed.”
