Domestic technology transfer is the positive exchange of information among the members of the scientific and engineering communities within the US, both defense and non-defense related. Technology export can be intentional or non-intentional, and the results can produce strategic benefitsdetriments to the nations economic, political, and military goals. The dichotomy and the dynamics of the national policies and directives on these two aspects of technology transfer are discussed for the bench engineer. The roles of the bench engineer in the government laboratory, industrial RD center, and the university research facilitylaboratory, are delineated. Guidance is provided on how to separate classified information from unclassified military significant technology, and from other unclassified technology information. The active participant role for the bench engineer is advocated to accomplish national security objectives through encouraging domestic technology transfer and preparing accurate technology assessments for considerations in export control case processing.
