About Us

NDIA is a nonprofit, educational association representing industry, government, and all military services. Nearly 1,000 companies and 26,000 individuals build their businesses, careers, and the future of the industrial base through NDIA membership. NDIA provides a forum for the interchange of ideas and technology between government and industry. It is in a key position to shape issues and influence defense policies through its chapters and divisions.

The mission of the Picatinny Chapter is to support its members, Picatinny Arsenal, and other NJ-based Defense Institutions. The membership defines the needs and goals of this chapter through networking, sharing of information, and socializing in positive and enriching environments.
