About the CWMD Consortium
The CWMD Consortium was formed in response to the government’s expressed interest to establish an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) with an eligible entity or group of entities, to include industry, academic, and not-for-profit partners, for advanced development efforts to support agencies that have a need to prototype new technologies related to Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction. The usage of an OTA allows government to partner with the CWMD to leverage cutting-edge R&D and develop prototypes. This gives agencies an agile and flexible way to develop CWMD prototypes using new and innovative technology. OTAs enable fast acquisition of critically needed technologies in areas as diverse as shipbuilding, armaments, satellites, medical devices, and electromagnetic spectrum technologies.
