DreamPort is a cyber innovation, collaboration, and prototyping facility located in Columbia, MD. It was created by the U.S. Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) through a Partnership Intermediary Agreement (PIA) awarded to the Maryland Innovation and Security Institute (MISI) in May 2018. DreamPort is designed as an open facility which enables collaboration between federal and private sector cybersecurity experts. It provides an environment where entrepreneurs, nontraditional companies, small businesses and academics can present and develop innovative new technologies that could be useful to federal cyber warriors, in an unclassified way. DreamPort hosts and conducts rapid prototyping events (RPEs) where multiple teams or companies are selected to work on solving a specific challenge problem.
