Abstract : This document lists 451 transitions from basic research to applications in the US Air Force, in US industry, and in other defense or nondefense government organizations. Only transitions reported during FY96 are listed; transitions reported in prior years are not repeated in this report. All reported transitions are the result of basic research funded by AFOSR; this research in many cases is still ongoing. In most cases, the research was initiated years ago, and in a few cases decades ago. This document reports current transitions as contrasted to the customary historical reporting as to how research laid the foundations for current technology and products. We used the following to define "current transitions": A technology transition or transfer is a partnership between basic researchers and users where both expend nontrivial and sufficient resources toward realizing a product, process, or analytical objective.
