Defense Applications Group

UNC Defense Applications Group hosts ‘Round Robin’ to match UNC researchers with potential Dept of Defense research funding and collaboration opportunities

A Multi-Disciplinary Group of UNC Faculty and Staff

The UNC Defense Applications Group (DAG) is a multi-disciplinary group of UNC faculty and staff who provide subject matter expertise to address science & technology (S&T) gaps of the United States Army Special Army Operations Command (USASOC).

The group was established in early 2011 to explore research and development (R&D) opportunities and synchronize efforts in support of enabling superior Warfighter performance. Coupled with its partnership with and proximity to the special operations “center of gravity,” the University’s capacity to leverage system-wide capabilities to deliver solutions for the complex, interrelated and interdependent national security environment is unmatched.

The UNC Defense Applications Group hosts workshops on technical topics, bringing leading academic and industry experts to discuss state of the art technologies and science. In November 2012, UNC hosted a workshop on Human Domain Analysis focused on quantitative social science methods and tools to support the needs of special operations forces. This event in Fayetteville, NC, attracted nearly 160 attendees from academia, industry, government and military communities, including many from USASOC. Read more
