SECNAV Ray Mabus has signed the Naval Innovation Network (NIN) Charter, formalizing the enduring legacy of Task Force Innovation (TFI). As identified in the Department of the Navy (DON) Innovation Vision, the NIN is a critical enabler for the DON in a world increasingly defined by speed and information sharing. It serves to rapidly connect people, ideas, and information with the goal of maintaining and advancing the operational advantages of our Naval Services.
The NIN is a network of DON personnel working toward the shared goal of maintaining and advancing the operational advantages of our Naval Services. The NIN allows forward-thinking DON personnel to connect and collaborate on innovation activities across services, components and levels.
The NIN is designed to be an agile and adaptive, technology-enabled network-of-networks, capable of identifying, connecting and growing innovation networks within the DON innovation ecosystem.
The NIN will continuously evolve to accommodate rapidly changing technologies and organizational constructs as well as inform concept, CONOPS and wargame developers to accelerate the ideation process.
Network functionalities and tools will focus on generating an environment and network behaviors that encourage, support and mentor freedom of action and individual initiative on innovation activities.
The NIN is open to DON organizations, activities and units, formal and informal innovation networks, and to all individual DON military members and civilians of any rank and grade.
