About APEx

Operating under 10 United States Code § 4021 (Research Projects) and 10 United States Code § 4022 (Prototype Projects) to include the ability to pursue Follow-On Production transactions, the Advanced Prototyping and Experimentation (APEx) Consortium operationalizes Science and Technology and facilitates 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 advances and accelerates Research (Science and Technology (S&T)) and Prototype and Production capabilities that facilitate transformational overmatch by keeping pace with technology through speed of acquisition, diversification of sources, improved engagement, and innovative approaches.

Given the breadth and scale of the national security enterprise, the APEx Consortium advances and accelerates 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.
