National Defense Industrial Association
The National Defense Industrial Association is an association for the United States government and the defense industry. Based in Arlington, Virginia, NDIA was established in 1919 as a result of the inability of the defense industry to scale up the war effort during World War I.
The NDIA promotes activities and forums for the interchange between industry and government on technology and acquisition developments. In addition, it provides state of the art defense technology updates and promotes better management techniques through symposia. NDIA's divisions cover a wide spectrum of interest areas that are important to the national defense preparedness effort. The divisions are organized to promote the exchange of technical information related to the research, development, production, logistics, and management of weapons systems, policy, associated support, and training among the department of defense, other federal government and state agencies, industry, academia, and scientific agencies.
