Tandem means Together
The role of national security as a technology creator and consumer drives the U.S. economy.
The relationship between national security, particularly the Department of Defense, with entrepreneurship and new industrial growth is under appreciated. Every significant industrial wave in the US since World War II has been fostered and driven in a large way by national security research and spending. Things that shape our world today, such as the Internet, semiconductors and GPS, and the things that will shape our world tomorrow, such as artificial limbs, artificial intelligence, space technologies and material science, would not exist without the government and entrepreneurs working in tandem. Tandem NSI is an initiative that will promote and accelerate opportunities to create new industries and businesses and highlight national security innovation as a driver of US economic innovation and growth.
