DIU Reports Strong FY 2022

February 3, 2023

Fiscal year 2022 was a “banner year” for the Defense Innovation Unit, C4ISRNET reported. The unit pushed 17 technologies, compared to eight in the previous fiscal year, according to DIU’s recently published annual report.

“DIU’s momentum is accelerating across all of our key performance indicators. In FY 2022, DIU posted 36 new solicitations to our website, which represents a 38% increase from FY 2021,” the report says. “DIU received a record-breaking number of commercial proposals in response to our solicitations and awarded 12.5% more prototype contracts than in FY 2021 with a total value of $204.8 [million] in prototype contracts.”

The report is dedicated to the late former Defense Secretary Ash Carter, who founded DIU.
