Abstract : This paper presents two university-based programs to facilitate technology transfer from universities to the military services and industry. First, through 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 services, being based upon co-funding and support from industry, universities, and venture capital groups. The programs would offer the following five benefits to the military services and private industry: (1) provide both the services and industry with an applied engineering program and the training for new engineers and researchers, (2) serve as an information resource for both the services and industry on new technologies, (3) provide industry with both advanced knowledge and laboratory resources, (4) provide management and marketing support for small technology firms, and (5) expand the base of possible new technologies for inclusion in military systems.
