Defense Innovation Unit Experimental (Diux)

Department of Defense company that contracts commercial companies, providing technology for national security.

The Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) is a Department of Defense (DoD) company that looks to assist in the acceleration of commercial technologies for national security. The company was founded in 2015 in Mountain View, California, United States.

The company looks to prototype and advance solutions in national security for the United States. They are focused on five technology areas: autonomy, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, human systems, and space.

Defense Innovation Unit has contract authority with the DoD allowing for outside contractors to help develop commercial technology solutions. The DoD and DIU claim to identify problems, develop prototypes, and begin implementing solutions within 60 to 90 days on existing technology, instead of legacy solutions that took 18-months from problem identification to contract bid. This allows, according to DIU, the DoD to prioritize national security and defense at commercial rates.
