“Blending both prize awards and OTA agreements into a single pitch competition using proven xTech processes gives the Army a novel way to attract new companies, while addressing technology gaps in a mutually beneficial partnership.”

“The ultimate success is putting a capability in the Soldiers’ hands. Some of the small successes along the way are building the trust, getting some contracts in place and getting these non-traditional partners to work with.”
U.S. Army DEVCOM-Atlantic
“Within Army acquisition programs, everything’s very traditional. You start with your requirements, you send out a proposal and down-select your award. It’s a very strenuous acquisition timeline. xTech is very non-traditional, and is a completely different approach to how you go about it.”
U.S. Army PEO IEW&S
“The xTech Program does a good job of reaching out to communities that the Army wouldn’t otherwise have access to. The program offers a low-barrier to entry for these communities to engage with the Army and understand Army challenges.”

Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army for Research and Technology
