It has been a whirlwind year here at PAC! One of our goals for 2018 was to expand our presence and professional networking activities globally and specifically in the Patuxent River area. As a business comprised of subject matter experts in niche fields, we appreciate the value of collaborating with like-minded organizations and value our professional relationships. To that end, PAC became a member of The Patuxent Partnership in early 2018, to collaborate across academia, industry, and government on technology initiatives.
The Patuxent Partnership (TPP) is a professional networking organization based near Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Maryland. The group boasts nearly 500 members, comprised of government and military personnel, private contractors, local business owners, and members of academia.
PAC’s core areas of expertise include fields such as Electronic Warfare, Mission Planning, and Tactical Information Exchange, and have enjoyed attending TPP’s technically-focused symposiums and expos. Many of our personnel work remotely in various strategic locations throughout the US, so the town hall and networking events hosted by TPP have been invaluable to helping us reconnect with our friends and colleagues in Pax River.
As a small company, we especially enjoyed the Other Transaction Authority (OTA) briefing hosted by TPP and NAVAIR leadership earlier this summer. The program highlighted a new, streamlined approach to NAVAIR contracting for research and development or prototyping works and introduced upcoming opportunities for small businesses in the NAVAIR space. We look forward to continuing our partnership with TPP and its members.
