Industry & Academia

The Training and Readiness Accelerator (TReX) engages industry, academia and other subject matter experts broadly to expedite development, demonstration, and delivery of cutting edge technology capabilities in support of modeling, simulation and training needs of the U.S. Department of Defense. TReX provides industry and academia with access to opportunities to showcase their technologies to prospective military buyers across the U.S. Department of Defense, including the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. TReX supports Members throughout the entire lifecycle of technology testing and acquisition process from solicitation distribution through prototype development and technology transition.

Defining Needs and Requirements

The rapid pace of global innovation creates new challenges everyday. Commercial technologies bring innovative solutions sets to these challenges. TReX helps define technology needs for a commercial and non-defense audience to enable a better understanding of the requirements. TReX supports Members in understanding what the Government needs to enable efficient and effective submissions.

Prototype Development

The unique needs and operating environments of the military require technologies to be tested and validated to ensure the delivery of the best technology solution possible. TReX provides opportunities for Industry and Academia to prototype and test their technologies for military use.


The U.S. Department of Defense is constantly expanding its technology capabilities. TReX provides a one-stop shop for industry to view the latest technology requirements for modeling, simulation, training and readiness. TReX Members are able to respond to any solicitations posted on the TReX website.

Rapid Contracting and Acquisition

Innovation in the military can only move as quickly as the contracting process allows. TReX utilizes a rapid contracting vehicle known as an Other Transaction Authority (OTA) to enable rapid contracting, prototyping and delivery of proven technology solutions. TReX is delivering a first-of-its-kind, customized process to ensure efficient contracting and acquisition to deliver technology at a private sector pace.


TReX is designed to get technology to the Warfighter quickly. Once validated, the technology is only useful when in the hands of the end user. Our platform will ensure support to TReX Members throughout the process to ensure that the technology solution, once identified and tested, gets delivered to the field.
