Abstract : The following paper presents two university based programs to facilitate technology transfer from universities to the Army and Industry. First, through Army technology transfer centers for applied engineering training and consulting, and second in assisting and expanding university technology transfer incubator programs. These programs would require minimal new funding by the Army, being based upon co-funding and support from industry, universities and venture capital groups. The programs would offer the following five benefits to the Army and private industry: provide both the Army and industry with an applied engineering program and the training for new engineers and researchers, serve as an information resource for both the Army and industry on new technologies, provide industry with both advanced knowledge and laboratory resources, provide management and marketing support for small technology firms, and expand the base of possible new technologies for inclusion in Army systems.
