The Advanced Naval Technology Exercise, or “ANTX,” is conducted by the Naval Research and Development Establishment in order to inform and align technical innovation with operational needs. 

The program is intended to facilitate collaboration between industry, academia, and government research and development organizations, providing a forum in which the naval community can evaluate the utility of new technologies before decisions are made on investment priorities.
