Northrop Grumman has launched a new Web-based environment for academic institutions and small businesses to collaborate on technology development, the company announced Wednesday.

The Northrop Grumman Innovation Network currently has two active innovation challenges, one calling on participants to submit concepts for updated or new defense radars in 10-to-20 years and another for a system to detect small-arms fire onboard a ground vehicle.

Northrop previously launched a crowd-sourcing initiative for employees to share ideas within the company, later leading to the establishment of the new network.

“The Northrop Grumman Innovation Network is intended to stimulate the sharing of the best ideas and solutions from some of the brightest minds both inside and outside of the company,” said Chuck Brinkman, chief technology officer for the electronic systems sector.

Participants whose concepts for future aerospace and defense technologies are selected will be considered for company funds to continue development.
