PROPELS Provides Access to Crane Tech for Commercialization Opportunities

The PROPELS Accelerator is an incredible opportunity to commercialize cutting-edge technology developed at NSWC Crane. The program will provide access to amazing technology; connections to defense and entrepreneurial systems; and the chance to build an incredible new product, launch a new business and reach new markets

Participants will have access to a tested, patented, valuable piece of intellectual property. They will then work with a team for six weeks to develop a commercialization plan, with support from experts in defense and entrepreneurship. At the end of the PROPELS Accelerator, the teams’ solutions will be presented to a panel of experts. And later, participants will pitch at the Radius Indiana Crane IP Defense Innovation Competition for a chance at a prize package.

No experience contracting with the Navy or the Department of Defense? No problem! PROPELS will help you navigate the process and connect to the ecosystem.
