Abstract : This report verifies technology transfusion (the moving of high-payoff low-risk technologies from their first application to subsequent ones) takes too long and recommends several means to accelerate it. The recommendations were deduced by examining how six impediments to transfusion can be partially overcome using some of the over 20 organizations/processes that are briefly described in the report. The primary recommendation of the report is the chartering and manning of an organization to advocate and link (integrate) transfusion efforts across the Air Force using a networked approach. This approach can provide a synergistic effect to the transfusion process by providing structure in a decentralized fashion, guided, when needed, by a central organization that is in charge.
