Carter Announces Version 2.0 of Defense Innovation Unit Experimental
WASHINGTON, May 11, 2016 — The Defense Innovation Unit Experimental, or DIUx, is making a difference, and it will help to put new technologies into the hands of warfighters, Defense Secretary Ash Carter said in Mountain View, California, today.
Carter announced the formation of another technology hub to be built in Boston and introduced Raj Shah as the managing partner of DIUx.
The unit stood up last year as a way to get ideas and products from Silicon Valley into the Defense Department quickly.
Shah spoke about the need for this in ways his fellow warfighters would relate to.
