What We Do

To ensure readiness in today’s climate of increasing global challenges, the warfighter must be equipped with up-to-the-minute technologies. Innovative Defense Technologies’ solutions enable rapid integration, communication, and testing–strengthening the ability for all system platforms to work together to transform the speed of system delivery, usher in modernization, and accomplish the mission.

IDT develops innovative, industry-leading solutions that dramatically improve the quality and accelerate the delivery of capabilities to the warfighter.  Our solutions are based on Automated Test and ReTest (ATRT), a U.S. Navy initiative originating from the SBIR program. ATRT’s innovative methods and technologies have been awarded six patents to date with demonstrated results across more than 200 projects with the Navy. ATRT provides a powerful new approach for updating combat and weapon system software. Watch this brief video about ATRT to learn more.

ATRT’s patented methodology incorporates a sophisticated digital approach to Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE), Continuous Integration (CI), and Automated Test and Analysis (ATA). IDT engineers utilize digital engineering and advanced technologies to conduct exceptional mission engineering and capabilities-based testing for our DOD customers. These enabling technologies include:

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Automation
  • Big Data Analytics
  • Fuzzing
  • Image Recognition
  • Machine Learning
  • Virtualization
  • Visualization

Our knowledge and experience in system testing and analysis, combined with the use of patented automated methodologies enable us to create high-performance solutions that ensure system quality, functionality, and readiness.  Our dedication to disruptive innovation, discipline and quality is foundational to the solutions we develop and has transformed the delivery of software capabilities for our customers in the DOD. Our capabilities include:

Continuous Integration

IDT’s Continuous Integration (CI) solutions enable the efficient merging, testing, and integration of software at frequent intervals. CI helps engineers detect errors quickly, prevent integration problems, and increase quality controls. Our use of Virtualization offers unparalleled flexibility to rapidly assess software updates across multiple configurations. Our CI solutions improve technical performance, decrease costs, and speed the delivery of capabilities to the warfighter. Learn more.

Automated System Testing and Certification

IDT offers highly effective automated solutions for the entire system testing lifecycle. Our engineers design comprehensive testing strategies that include: requirements management, development, test execution, reporting, and certification. The use of Image Recognition through deep learning algorithms enables the testing of visual content. Our automated testing solutions enable testing to be conducted earlier and more frequently, reduce redundant testing, and provide faster and more agile, 24/7/365 test execution and certification. Learn more.

Automated Data Analysis

IDT’s powerful automated data analysis capabilities enable customers to rapidly evaluate system behavior against requirements and performance specifications. Our solutions incorporate state-of-the-art modeling, Big Data AnalyticsVisualization, and Machine Learning techniques to enable high-fidelity analysis and requirements verification to identify system problems and accelerate defect resolution. These solutions support complex systems requiring data-intensive evaluation which frequently exceeds program resources. Learn more.


IDT’s information assurance capabilities support the efficient management of software security in large enterprise systems. IDT’s cybersecurity solutions certify and protect complex networks against advanced, persistent cyberattacks using automated end-to-end vulnerability assessment and remediation. Our processes incorporate Fuzzing to discover coding errors and security loopholes. IDT’s cybersecurity solutions enable real-time identification and rapid resolution of security vulnerabilities.
