We have offices within the Department of Defense (DOD) that can evaluate your invention or idea and offer guidance on submitting your proposal. Each DOD office and military department is responsible for soliciting and evaluating proposals in areas important to its particular defense mission.  

To assist you, we've listed mailing addresses and websites of offices where information may be obtained.
