iDISPLA Platform Launches
Tuesday, July 7, 2020
The Office of the Chief Data Officer is proud to be part of a collaborative effort between the U.S. Army and the nation’s commercial and academia technology leaders to launch a new platform known as iDISPLA – which stands for Innovative Discovery Science Platform. The platform lays the groundwork for developing an innovation culture that starts in our communities and paves the way for solutions to real-life problems through distributed problem solving, people-centered input, crowdsourced constituent participation, analytics and a virtual collaboration platform to automate STEM/STEAM, R&D, workforce and technology transition initiatives.
iDISPLA is the first large scale democratization of an innovation/opportunity pilot initiative in the Commonwealth of Virginia, with other touch points across the nation. Read the official press release here.

Current iDISPLA partners include:
- Chief Data Officer for the Commonwealth of Virginia
- Close to 70 Universities
- High Schools across Virginia
- Commercial companies
- A network of thousands of individuals
- Chief Scientist of U.S. Army Night Vision Labs
