Network Development Network Development Design Readiness Assessment Innovation Pipeline Skills Development Asset Sharing

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.

The defense-related manufacturing supply chain in RI is diverse.

While some firms receive 100% of their revenue from the DoD, others derive much smaller amounts from DoD contracts. The work we are doing now will support the identification of the manufacturers that can most benefit from STEAM ENGINE USA services.
