The Southeastern New England Defense Industry Alliance 

Our Mission

The Southeastern New England Defense Industry Alliance (SENEDIA) was formed to identify, champion and coordinate issues that contribute to our National security and provide benefit to our members, local communities, the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security, and other Federal Government agencies.   SENEDIA's vision is to be a catalyst for thought leadership and technical innovation in undersea technology, cybersecurity and other critical defense technologies.  Our mission is to enable the development of the innovative technology, foster thought leadership and facilitate required workforce development.   We provide up-to-date information on Defense and Homeland security industry issues and initiatives.  Our alliance maintains detailed knowledge of the industrial base that supports our local Federal, Defense and Homeland Security installations and provides up-to-date information on Defense and Homeland security industry issues and initiatives to our members, citizens, state and local governments, and congressional delegations.   [...]
