The Doolittle Institute Technology Transfer program helps organizations benefit from the expansive basic and applied research performed at the Air Force Research Labs Munitions Directorate (AFRL/RW). Technology transfer can be complex, but the Doolittle Institute is here to facilitate the process. Please contact us to discuss working with AFRL technologies.
AFRL/RW Technology Focus Areas
- Aviation Technology
- Electrotechnology and Fluidics
- Guided Missile Technology
- Mathematical and Computer Sciences
- Military Sciences
- Navigation, Detection and Countermeasures
- Power Production and Energy Conservation (nonpropulsive)
- Test Equipment, Research Facilities and Reprography
What is Technology Transfer?
The Air Force Technology Transfer (T2) Program was created to ensure all Air Force science and engineering activities promote the transfer or exchange of technology with state and local governments, academia, and industry. These activities enhance the economic competitiveness of industry and promote the productivity of state and local governments while leveraging the Department of Defense (DoD) research and development (R&D) investment. They can also serve academia by opening up expanded areas of exploration and cooperation.
Learn more about T2 on our FAQs page. If members of AFRL are looking for new, potential applications for their technologies, they can schedule an Innovation Discovery Event (IDE) with the Doolittle Institute.
Technology Transfer enables you to:
Gain Access to AFRL Resources
Mechanisms: CTA, CRADA, EPA, ITA, MOU/MOA, MTA, PLA
Engage in Cooperative Research with AFRL
Mechanisms: CRADA, EPA, MOU/MOA
Use AFRL Equipment for Cooperative Research
Hire AFRL to Perform Specialized Testing & Evaluation
Below are some common T2 mechanisms defined.
