The San Diego Chapter of the National Defense Industrial Association has been an active Chapter with organizational roots that date back to WW-I through the American Defense Preparedness Association. The primary effort of the Chapter is to promote cooperative dialog between government and the defense industry. The San Diego chapter is one of the largest and most active, hence most influential, chapters in the nation. It has been selected as a “model chapter” since the inception of the award and its members hold 3 national NDIA Board positions.
R3 remains active in the NDIA San Diego chapter in addition to our national affiliation. We exhibit at the NDIA Global EOD Conference and Exhibition in Fort Walton Beach, FL held annually in the first week of May. The purpose of the event is to provide a public forum to discuss the utility of Army, Navy, Marine and Air Force EOD forces across the full spectrum of conflict – particularly in the areas of homeland defense, irregular warfare, stability operations, security force assistance, and major combat operations.
