Abstract:

One of the most difficult transitions in a products life cycle is the transition from the science and technology S and T environment to advanced development AD. Transition planning is necessary to bridge this technology Valley of Death in which promising technologies frequently are delayed or fail to make the transition. Without successful transitions, intellectual and financial investments in research do not translate to improved capabilities for the U.S. military. Early and thorough transition planning is key to success.
