About APEx

The Advanced Prototyping and Experimentation (APEx) Consortium seeks to operationalize Science and Technology and facilitate the delivery of fundamentally advantageous change that is rooted in the creation and exploitation of scientific knowledge delivered at the speed of relevance.

The APEx Consortium will advance and accelerate Research (Science and Technology) and Prototype and Production capabilities that facilitate transformational overmatch by keeping pace with technology though speed of acquisition, diversification of sources, improved engagement, and innovative approaches.

Given the breadth and scale of the national security enterprise, the APEx Consortium will advance and accelerate capabilities to address Research, Prototyping, and Production capabilities in the Technical Areas and Research Competencies listed below. The specific Technical Areas and Research Competencies deemed critical today may change and expand over the life of the APEx Consortium.
