Abstract:

Beginning in 1980, Congress passed a number of public laws to encourage the cooperative development of commercial products between the federal government and private companies. This cooperative process is called technology transfer. The main point of the laws is to allow commercial vendors and the organizations of the federal government to enter into cooperative research and development agreements CRADAs that enable both partners to the agreement to maximize their resources. Until now, these laws had only been applied to federal laboratory inventions and technical data. This paper applies those same laws to other intellectual properties of the federal government by developing a policy for the U.S. Army Military History Institute for the broad commercial development of their collection. This policy has broad application throughout the Department of Defense.
