Department of Defense Hosts

The NSIN X-Force program addresses real-world national security problems that require technical and entrepreneurial expertise. During the program, sponsors must supply an Action Officer to engage with their fellows on a weekly basis. For any in-person Fellowship projects, hosts may be expected to provide fellows regular on-base access to facilities and personnel where appropriate and relevant.

By the end of the program, sponsors receive a demonstration of the capability developed by their fellows and are expected to continue development and iteration afterward.

The problem submission period for Department of Defense sponsors is open until 11:59 p.m. ET on January 20, 2023.
