To be an innovation leader, an organization must efficiently leverage ideas, practices and
capabilities created anywhere, especially outside the organization. DIA has enhanced its ability to efficiently
leverage solutions from industry and academia. NeedipeDIA expands the ongoing dialogue between DIA and
innovative solution providers (industry, academia, labs) to address mission critical needs, and creates a direct
communication channel to the solution providers with emerging technology that enhances DIA's mission
NeedipeDIA enables DIA to express capability needs, clearly and concisely, to a larger
community of innovators and encourage participation from established partners and companies that have never
