This research project examined current technology transfer programs and developed a template for Air Command and Staff College ACSC to use to transfer its research programs to the private sector. Several technology transfer processes and opportunities within the Department of Defense and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA were analyzed. Findings indicate transferring government owned technology to the private sector is not only possible, but strongly encouraged. Commercializing government owned technology is now policy directed from the national level down to the individual Service department level. The Technology Transition Office and the Air Force Institute of Technology, located at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio and the Technology Transfer Office at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama are currently enjoying tremendous success in the technology transfer area. ACSC, by virtue of its definition as a research producing institution, can potentially be a major player in the technology transfer process. The product of this research is a fully integrated, user friendly multimedia personal computer application designed to facilitate the learning process and enhance the usability of the technology transfer process. Results of this research are applicable to a wide variety of audiences and are recommended for incorporation into ACSC curriculum.
