Southern Maryland Tech Bridge at Patuxent River

Lead by the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division, Southern Maryland's Tech Bridge focuses on unmanned aviation, autonomous systems, modeling and simulation, and live/virtual/constructive environments for training and test. The Navy designated Southern Maryland for its technological ecosystem, and its infrastructure that provides resources that have historically made the area a strong partner with the Navy, and its local industrial and academic base.
