TRIAD (Technology Requirements & Innovation Awareness Days) Ohio and subsequent TRIAD events create a space where companies with DoD requirement responsive technology can actively engage with the eyes and ears of the US Combatant Commands, the Science & Technology Scouts. Companies that participate in TRIAD events will have the chance to present their tech to the Scouts in closed pitch sessions and showcase events.

Who should attend TRIAD Ohio? Primarily, TRIAD is for companies with in-market or near-market technologies. Organizations that support, incubate, accelerate, invest in, or otherwise engage with those technology companies would also benefit.

The DoD is currently seeking solutions in:

  • C2 (Command & Control), C4I (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, & Intelligence), & Cyber;
  • Force Protection & Medical;
  • Domain Awareness;
  • Power & Energy;
  • Operations & Mission Support;
  • Weapons; and,
  • Electronic Spectrum Management.

Space is limited and only 200 companies will be accepted for the first TRIAD Ohio cohort. Of that number, 50 companies will secure a spot for a 20-minute pitch session with a panel of Scouts and 50 companies will be invited to display during the Company Showcase. All applying companies may attend the Education Day on August 13th, and from August 14th – 16th networking events with the scouts and workshops from MEP, SBDC, PTAC, and FAST programs.

The TRIAD application period is now open, but will close on July 31st, or as soon as the 200 company spots are filled. Companies wishing to participate in TRIAD Ohio may go to and download the Information Packet to get started. General registration opportunities will depend upon capacity. Only companies, speakers, scouts, and sponsors are insured a seat for the week’s activities.
