Pretotyping [pree-tuh-tahy-ping], verb: Testing the initial appeal and actual usage of a potential new product by simulating its core experience with the smallest possible investment of time and money. DiLAB runs these sprints on a rolling basis as Government Program Office’s bring their capability gaps forward to understand what’s in the realm of the possible to solve their toughest challenges.
DiLAB brings together DoD Acquisition Stakeholders, Warfighters, and select contributors from Industry and Academia to participate in Rapid Prototyping Events. The events are held over week long periods; the goal of these sprints is to buy-down risk and understand the potential benefits of injecting new technology into defense applications.
Held to incentivize the best in industry to architect new solutions to Defense challenges. Conducted on a rolling basis as Government Program Office’s bring forth their deepest pain points, these sprints aim to bring new, disruptive perspectives on inherently difficult Defense problems.
