In the past years many NATO nations started Innovation focused initiatives within military domain to capitalize on the unprecedented acceleration of technological development, primarily within the commercial sector.

The developments in the US (NSIN, Air Force Kessel Run Lab), Germany (Cyber Incubators), France (AID), UK (DSTL) paved the way to joint efforts with NATO.

Consequently NATO had established a senior level Innovation Board at NATO HQ chaired by the Deputy Secretary General.

The NATO Innovation Board confirmed ACTs role to play the leading role for innovation in NATO.

With this mandate, ACT has rearranged its internal structure to effectively meet the ambitions of NATO nations.

The iHub provides a space to test hypotheses and solutions turning ideas into user-centric Minimum Viable Products (MVPs) through close collaboration of end users and developers.

The Lab provides an incubator environment where ideas will come to life rapidly following the best practices of Agile DevSecOps from industry and the latest research from academia.

The Lab operational model is being developed incrementally, and the close collaboration with all stakeholders will shape its culture, processes and toolset.

To successfully coordinate innovation activities across partner networks it is essential to establish basic guidance and rules orchestrating interactions via a common framework.

This framework will help to better capitalize on larger network capabilities, help avoid duplication of work, and promote reuse of products.

As the list of project requirements grows, a need for an agile methodology contractor with SDLC management experience will help the Program leadership team set strategy, align, and manage the procurement of solutions to help NATO Nations make informed decisions and win their edge with the latest world-class capabilities and tool support.
