Innovation for Defense Applications is USC’s class that is part of the Hacking for Defense program sponsored by NSIN. This class provides students with the opportunity to learn how to work with the Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community (IC) to address the nation’s emerging threats and security challenges. In this course, teams of 3-5 students from interdisciplinary backgrounds develop minimum viable products (MVPs) and prototypes that match DoD/IC users’ needs by the end of the semester.
