Success Story

Legionarius:  Rapid Contracting through RRTO

What did we do?

Legionarius – a technical solutions provider for performance garments in high-risk and combat environments, has a Rapid Reaction Technology Office (RRTO) contract with SOCOM through SOFWERX.  During their time in the 2017 MassChallenge accerator, MITRE provided support through technical and domain mentors, access to our lab faciliteis, and through our trusted relationship with RRTO.

Outcomes

  • With the help of MITRE and MassChallenge, Legionarius went from idea to DoD contract in less than one year
  • Our technical and domain mentoring supported rapid technical development through conceptual design and sub-componenet proof-of-concept to de-risk critical functionalities
  • We supported Legionarius in navigating the RRTO process for rapid contracting and introduced them to additional government stakeholders
  • Legionarius is currently under a $1.5M contract with SOCOM to deliver protoype units of their smart garment system for field testing

MITRE provided technical mentorship for electronic hardware design, guidance through RRTO contracting process, and insight into DoD communication and software challenges which was tremendously important to our early success.
