Carter: $65 Million in DIUx Contracts in Pipeline | Defense News

Secretary of Defense Ash Carter today officially launched the third outpost of his Defense Innovation Unit-Experimental (DIUx) program, opening the doors to an office in Austin, Texas – and announced that the office has around $65 million in contracts that will be awarded soon.

Austin joins Silicon Valley and Boston, Mass., as tech hubs that Carter hopes will provide a flow of ideas and technology from the commercial sector to the Pentagon.
