Naval Agility Awards​​

In ANTX West 19 was a culminating event of Phase 1 of the Fight the Naval Force Forward Task Force. ANTX West 19 provided the venue for the rapid assessment of key enabling technologies to help increase the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps' ability to "Fight the Naval Force Forward" in contested environments. 
The 52 prototype technologies demonstrated spanned technology groupings that included command and control (C2), communications, unmanned systems, fires, and counter-intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, and targeting (C-ISRT). 
ANTX West 19 provided a low-barrier to entry venue for the rapid exploration of tactics and technology pairings (i.e., innovations) by more than 50 Sailors and Marines and more than 300 practicing scientists and engineers.​
