The defense sector in RI is vibrant and a significant economic driver.

In the STEAM ENGINE USA pilot, we are working to support further growth of the sector with innovation and diversification strategies. To do this, we will fortify a network of manufacturers, designers, educators, investors, consultants and others who can participate along the innovation pipeline in the defense sector, inside Rhode Island and in partnering states.
