The NSTIC advances naval surface technology innovation through a consortium that researches, develops, tests and integrates complex naval warfare systems across a broad range of technology fields and disciplines. 

Garner said, “I look forward to this opportunity to represent the interests of our university members on this committee. I am also excited to provide additional insight to the NSTIC based on my experience in submarines, shipyards, ship construction and research and development throughout my career as a Naval officer.”

The consortium enables rapid research, access to innovative commercial solutions for defense requirements and innovations from industry, academia and non-traditional companies that frequently participate in federal research and development (R&D). 

In addition, the NSTIC offers federally-funded research and business opportunities for companies of varying sizes and academia, particularly newer and small-scale companies that do not commonly work with government entities.

Garner’s research expertise includes biomedical applications of pulsed power and plasmas, high power microwaves and theoretical biophysics. He is the Undergraduate Program Chairman at NE, and holds Courtesy Appointments in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and Agricultural & Biological Engineering (ABE).
