ABOUT THE MISSISSIPPI DEFENSE INITIATIVE

The Mississippi Defense Initiative (MDI) is a program from the United States Department of Defense Office of Local Defense Community Cooperation, The University of Southern Mississippi, and public and private sector partners that believe in the promise of a diverse Mississippi economy.

The MDI unites federal labs, defense companies, other private businesses, Mississippi entrepreneurs, Mississippi educational institutions, Mississippi public entities, and domain experts to design, develop, and roll-out strategies to transition from heavy defense-oriented revenue models to commercial revenue models.
