  • WBI offers two unique environments and five capabilities and services that foster R&D collaborations and technology innovation.

    We also reach out to a world-wide network of innovators to energize R&D collaborations and technology transfer in aerospace, advanced materials and manufacturing, human performance, sensors, and environmental technologies.

    Two Environments

    Tec^Edge Innovation &
    Collaboration Center
    Tec^Edge Works
    As one of WBI’s two centers, Tec^Edge ICC is a unique, neutral, and collaborative environment for government, industry, and academia teams to use to solve complex challenges. As our second of two centers, Tec^Edge Works serves as a collaborative environment for hands-on rapid prototyping among government, industry and academia.
