Participate in our Food Truck Challenge and Help Us Pick A New Monday FoodTruck!

Starting August 1st, King Konch will no longer be serving the park in their regular Monday spot. We have several trucks interested in the spot, so we want your help deciding who should be our next Monday regular!

Each Monday in August, we will have a different food truck serving the Park, and at the end of the month, we will send out a poll for you to help us decide. Make sure to check each truck out and let us know who you want! King Konch will move to the substitute list, as will the three food trucks not chosen for the Monday slot.

Nhu Energy participates with FSU on successful proposal to $100M Navy Expeditionary Warfare Prototyping program

Innovation Park resident, Nhu Energy is among the small business partners on a successful FSU proposal to the U.S. Navy to lead an Expeditionary Warfare Prototyping multiple party team (MPT). The MPT will help the Navy acquire new equipment and systems and get them into the hands of the warfighters faster by leveraging teams of organizations with diverse capabilities and a special DoD funding agreement designed for that purpose.

The FSU-led team and proposal, spearheaded by the Panama City campus, has a history of working closely with the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) in Panama City, and is also one of only five selected by the Navy. Agreements have been awarded to the MPT’s for a base of two years, with two potential, two-year option periods for a total six-year period of performance. The agreement has a cumulative ceiling amount of $100 million. Nhu Energy looks forward to bringing its capabilities in power, energy, and controls technology and systems development and testing in support of the FSU team and the U.S. Navy.
