Naval Integrated in Contested Environments (NICE) ANTX

ANTXs link operators, government scientists and industry to innovate and inform concepts and tactics to rapidly deliver technology to the warfighter.


Led by the Naval Research & Development Establishment (NR&DE), ANTXs are hosted by Naval Warfare Centers to demonstrate emerging technologies and innovations that address Navy and Marine Corps mission priorities and gaps.

ANTXs provide an environment for the warfighter to assess the operational utility of technological innovations.

During the exercise, military decision-makers identify promising technologies.
