The Indiana Office of Defense Development (IODD) was created through an executive order by Governor Mike Pence on his first day in office to provide a focused effort on growing the defense sector business in Indiana and creating jobs for Hoosiers.
The IODD will work with all existing defense assets in the state, and has signed a partnership agreement with NSA Crane. This agreement is the next step in leveraging the incredible assets at NSA Crane and other defense installations along with Indiana’s industry and academic assets for economic development and makes the most of taxpayer funded capabilities and research.
IODD is led by Duane Embree, executive director, and the office is based in Bloomington. Please direct all inquiries to Brandi Hughes.
