The company said Wednesday it established the Missile Defense Futures Lab to encourage collaboration between the technology industry and military sector.

MDFL has servers and other equipment designed to process information from missile detection platforms and allows developers to create software for tracking nuclear threats.

Lisa Brown, vice president of missile defense solutions at Northrop, said the company works with its customers to drive the defense industry’s digital transformation.

“With speed and agility we can securely meet with teams across the country, start designing a product, share it with the customer and receive feedback in real-time, reducing the length of our product roadmap dramatically,” Brown added.

The flagship lab is made-up of distributed facilities in Arizona, Colorado, Maryland, North Carolina and Virginia.
