The best ideas are made even better through collaboration and experimentation—and the way to achieve that is to surround yourself with other forward-thinking game-changers who can help you leverage your resources and put them to work. Whether you’re a defense contractor or highly specialized technology company, you need a space to collaborate and build relationships with strategic partners so you can channel your unique capabilities in a way that helps you create with maximum impact and efficiency.
At FISTA Innovation Park, our mission is to build a synergistic hub for the best in engineering, technology, and defense expertise to support the needs of the warfighter. With a high-security facility and on-site STEM lab, we’re an acceleration hub for the nation’s top defense contractors, academic institutions, and innovators to collaborate and partner with other like-minded thinkers.
Located in the heart of Lawton, Oklahoma, FISTA is just minutes from Fort Sill—the world’s largest military field artillery training base and home of the Army’s lead agency for the Department of Defense. As a member of FISTA, you’ll have the ability to research and develop your technology with feedback and testing from our nation’s most comprehensive base of soldiers, training, and development. Home to two of our military’s Cross Functional Teams, Fort Sill has ample resources—and need—to partner with the best in innovative defense technology and engineering to amplify its modernization and support of the warfighter.
When you join FISTA, you have the opportunity to integrate your efforts with other like-minded institutions; receive real-time feedback about your prototypes without sending them miles away; and make timely adjustments to your research and technology. Our high-security offices and workspaces ensure your projects are protected while allowing you to work closely with other sharp-minded innovators and the nearby Army base.
FISTA has everything you need to make the most of your expertise—so the question to ask yourself is this: with your talent, resources, and technology, do you have what it takes to support the warfighter?
