SRC is a nonprofit 501(c)3 and an active member of the following consortia. As a nonprofit, SRC fulfills the non-traditional participation requirement for OTA prototype projects under provisions of the 2018 NDAA, providing an alternative to the cost-sharing requirements.

Consortium Supporting Organization Scope

Aviation & Missile Technology Consortium (AMTC)

Army AMRDEC and ACC-Redstone

AMTC identifies critical aviation and missile system challenges and develops prototype technologies to enhance warfighter lethality, survivability, and combat effectiveness.

Border Security Technology Consortium (BSTC)


The Border Security Technology Consortium (BSTC) supports the CBP and other potential customers within DHS in providing collaborative R&D and rapid prototyping/piloting capabilities germane to the border security domain. The desired objective is for the BSTC to provide a “one stop” source for capabilities across the border security technology spectrum, including: Surveillance and monitoring; Identification and assessment; Targeting and intelligence; Communications and information management;; Apprehension/detention/seizure/removal; and other border security – related capabilities.

Consortium for Command, Control, and Communication in Cyberspace (C5)


Provides solutions for innovative technologies in Offensive and Defensive Cyber Operations, Situational Understanding, C4ISR and Targeting, System-of-Systems Architecture Tactical and Strategic Networks, Enterprise Systems, Software and Hardware Technologies, Artificial Intelligence Forensics, Analytics, Systems Integration, Electronic Warfare, Positioning, Navigation and Timing, Information Operations, Intelligence Analysis, Exploitations and Disseminations, Mobility and Autonomy, Sensors, Modeling and Simulation, Training, Enabling Technologies

Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD)


Facilitates rapid prototyping to counter Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosives (CBRNE) threats and weapons of mass destruction (WMD). The prototyping requirements include any technologies that enable or enhance the understanding of the CBRNE operational environment, threats, and vulnerabilities; control, defeat, disable, and/or dispose of WMD threats; safeguard the force while responding to natural and manmade disasters; and promote the cooperation, coordination, interoperability, and decision making between agencies, all levels of government, and with partner nations.

Strategic & Information Warfare Research Project (IWRP)


The Information Warfare Research Project (IWRP) has established an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) to engage industry and academia to develop and mature technologies in the field of Information Warfare that enhance Navy and Marine Corps mission effectiveness.

Marine Corps Systems Commands (MCSC)

Product Manager, Soldier Maneuver Sensors (PM SMS)

Marine Corps Systems Command’s (MCSC) OTA is a five-year, renewable agreement and has no ceiling.  PM SMS is responsible for developing and equipping the Soldier with body-mounted, head-worn, and weapon system sensors and lasers to enhance battlefield domination through improved lethality, mobility, and survivability in all weather and visibility conditions.

National Advanced Mobility Consortium (NAMC)


Provides the Government with ready, quality access to the broadest population of U.S. ground vehicle system (GVS), sub-system, and component technology developers and providers in a competitive environment; to work in partnership with the Government to implement and refine business processes and tools to streamline individual project contract administration; and to expedite the innovation, development, and production of new GVS capabilities for U.S. warfighters

National Armaments Consortium (NAC)


Provides research and development initiatives in the areas including, but not limited to the armament technologies of: Protection and Survivability, Demilitarization, Ammunition, Weapon Systems, Energetic Materials, Warheads/Lethal Mechanisms, Fuzes & Sensors, Enabling Technology, Joint Insensitive Munitions, and Rockets, Missiles and Bombs

National Spectrum Consortium (NSC)

Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, Emerging Capabilities and Prototyping (ODASD) – ACC-NJ

Provides research and development into spectrum access technologies to enable improved cognizance of spectrum activity, protection of US activity in the electromagnetic spectrum domain, and the ability to relocate and/or share spectrum anytime, anywhere access is needed

System of Systems Consortium (SOSSEC/SCEC)


SOSSEC - Facilitates research and development activities to support areas of military and related activities initiatives including state-of-the-art technology, scientific, and engineering skills that are needed to develop and transition new technologies into applicable systems

SCEC – Facilitates technology demonstrations and prototype projects in sensors, communications and electronics sciences and other related fields to enhance the mission effectiveness of military personnel and the supporting platforms, systems, components, or materials proposed by the DoD
