 Navy-Industry International Dialogue (NIID) Program 

Navy-Industry International Dialogue (NIID) Program

The NIID is a forum organized by the Navy International Programs Office (NIPO) and the International Division of NDIA. Established in 1999, the NIID has grown from a quarterly update of NIPO activities to its current, issue/topic oriented dialogues. The objectives of the NIID are as follows:

  • Host a forum that focuses on important, topical issues that provide a compelling reason for U.S. government, industry and foreign attachés to attend.
  • Provide NIPO with the opportunity to share its views and activities with industry and the attaché community.
  • Discuss and promote the opportunities for international participation in current and future navy programs.
  • Structure the event in a way that promotes the open exchange of ideas among the U.S. Navy, industry and attaché community participants.

Topics for NIID meetings are developed cooperatively by representatives of the International Division and NIPO staff. Meetings take place in the Metropolitan Washington, D.C. area and are schedule for two and one half hours of presentations followed by a one hour cocktail reception. Examples of past topics include:

  • C4ISR
  • Littoral Combat Ship Program
  • Joint Strike Fighter Program
  • Deepwater Program
  • Multi-Mission Maritime Aircraft (MMA)/Broad Area Maritime Surveillance (BAMS)
  • Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Programs
  • F/A-18 E/F/G
