Abstract:

The objective of this project is to explore the concept of Venture Capitalism VC as a vehicle for technology transference. Currently, the United States Air Force USAF relies on an inefficient timeline for research and development to acquire new technologies. In an effort to improve efficiency in technology development the USAF needs to adopt alternative processes such as VC. This project explores the use of a VC firm, technology transference, USAF policies and procedures, required USAF infrastructure, and funding. Ultimately, the product from this research is an implementation plan for a USAF VC initiative.
