Core Technology Sectors

Welcome

For nearly 200 years, the 143-acre Watervliet Arsenal has served as a U.S. Army manufacturing facility. On site, there is a total of 72 buildings and over 2.2 million square feet of space. The Arsenal’s reputation as “America’s Cannon Factory” is a testament to the vital role the facility has played in America’s defense since 1813. The Arsenal is also home to Benet Laboratories, the Army’s principal research and engineering facility for assigned weapon systems. Benet has a staff of 300 scientists, engineers and support personnel.

Today, the Arsenal Business & Technology Partnership, has positioned the Arsenal as a critical hub in New York’s Tech Valley. The growth of the Capital Region’s nanotechnology sector is being fueled through strategic partnerships with New York State government, The College of Nanoscale Science & Engineering (CNSE) at the University at Albany, and with business groups like the Center for Economic Growth (CEG).

The future is bright at the Watervliet Arsenal. As the Tech Valley initiative has prospered, the Partnership has successfully attracted new tenants to the site and helped them to integrate into the regional economy.
