This Annex discusses a unique technology transition program in one of the Department of Defenses separate operating organizations-the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization BMDO. BMDO is not a laboratory, nor does it direct any Department of Defense Laboratories. It does, however, use many of the Federal Laboratories, including those in the Department of Defense, in the pursuit of designing and developing a missile defense system. Because it uses all the Department of Defense Services and many of its agencies as technology agents in its defense mission, BMDO has a unique position in the transition of technology from the Defense and other Federal Laboratories. The BMDO technology transition program is also one of the most active and innovative of any Federal technology transition program. The following Annex will describe the BMDO technology transition program through, not only Defense Laboratories, but also the other Federal Laboratories and research organizations in the BMDO research team. It will also briefly document the types of success stories that a pro- active Federal technology transition program cna anticipate when applied as we believe the Congress intended. Data included in this Annex is correct as of October 1993.
