Who We Are

MilTech is an authorized National Government Partnership Intermediary that helps bring innovative technology to the U.S. government quickly, reliably, and cost-effectively. MilTech was established in 2004 as a collaboration between Montana State University and the Office of the Secretary of Defense. Partnership Intermediaries are state or local government entities that work with the Department of Defense (DOD), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as well as other federal agencies, to facilitate technology transfer and commercialization activities.

MilTech is also the only university-based mentor in the Air Force Mentor Protégé Program and is a proud recipient of the 2020 Nunn-Perry Award recognizing MilTech's performance in the Defense Department's Mentor Protégé Program.

By leveraging the Department of Commerce's nationwide Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) for the U.S. Government, MilTech has over 300 active and completed projects with DOD and DHS. Specifically for DHS, MilTech assists DHS Components, Program Managers, Labs and Integrated Product Teams with technology scouting, identifying technology gaps and unmet needs, critical design, engineering samples, and manufacturability expertise to advance knowledge, technology and manufacturing readiness levels.
