A Greater Depth of Innovation

FATHOMWERX is a technology-based collaborative that includes the EDC, Matterlabs, NAVSEA, NAVFAC and the Port of Hueneme. Serving as a public-private laboratory, community, and resource for technological innovation, the partners strive to fuse small and non-traditional companies, academic institutions, and other Department of Defense stakeholders together to work on the most challenging problems in military, port, and maritime domains.

In 2019, the Port announced a partnership with Economic Development Collaborative, Matter Labs, and Naval Base Ventura County/NAVSEA to bring together a network of leading academic, research, test & evaluation, and in-service engineering centers to further expand the nation’s ability to provide solutions to relevant challenges in the maritime domain.
