Groton-based ThayerMahan, Inc., a world leader in autonomous maritime security solutions, announced today that it has signed a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) Newport, the Navy's full-spectrum research, development, test and evaluation, engineering, and fleet support center for submarine warfare systems and many other systems associated with the undersea battlespace. Partnering with NUWC-Newport represents an important collaboration for research and development in the field of persistent maritime surveillance and seabed surveying.

Mike Connor, ThayerMahan CEO said, "This is our first CRADA with NUWC.  We are excited about the opportunity to share the progress we made in in the design, construction, and operation of long-endurance undersea warfare systems.  We are also eager to learn from the very talented and experienced team at NUWC.  Together, we plan to deliver new capabilities at affordable prices for the US Navy."

A Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) is a written agreement between one or more federal laboratories and one or more non-federal parties under which the government, through its laboratories, provides personnel, facilities, equipment or other resources with or without reimbursement (but not funds to non-federal parties).

The non-federal parties provide personnel, funds, services, facilities, equipment or other resources to conduct specific research or development efforts that are consistent with the mission of the laboratory.

CRADAs are authorized by 15 U.S.C. 3710a. The governing regulation is AR 70-57, Military-Civilian Technology Transfer, dated 26 February 2004.
