This effort examined a development beneath the Defense Advanced Research Project Agencys DARPAs umbrella program, OASIS Organically Assured and Survivable Information Systems. The focus of this effort was on the identification of promising technology and assessing the readiness, applicability, and maturity of research and technology derived from or created during the research process. Effective and rapid transition of new technology is essential to the nations security. With advancements in computing and with States worldwide becoming increasingly technologically sophisticated, we must create an environment that not only fosters cutting edge research, but does so in a way that considers how this research can be deployed most effectively and efficiently. Efficiency must always be a consideration in planning and performing research. It is supposed here that, in some cases, an effective transition environment can improve the quality of research, particularly in the output of research projects, and that early assessment is one means to provide feedback to the research processes at a time when important research decisions are being made or need to be made.
