Overview[edit | edit source]

The National Center for Defense Robotics (NCDR), an initiative of The Technology Collaborative, was founded in 2002 to accelerate the development and integration of advanced robotics for defense-related applications, especially in response to the federal government's unmanned vehicle mandate. The NCDR received initial funding of about $5 million and currently works closely with member companies, universities and other organizations to select, fund and manage technology development and integration programs; facilitate teaming agreements, such as mentor-protégé relationships and to develop general, computer-based training materials for unmanned systems.
