Offices of Research and Technology Applications Representatives

To derive maximum return on our country’s technological investments, Congress has passed legislation to encourage the transfer of federally funded technology to the private sector. Department of Navy (DoN) technology transfer representatives identify and assess potential technologies and ideas from their own laboratories that may be transferred to state and local governments, industry, or universities. These representatives also assist in domestic technology transfer efforts. An important mechanism to facilitate technology transfer is the Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA). A CRADA between a Naval laboratory and private sector enables the commercialization of DoN-developed technology to the benefit of both parties. Universities, industry, organizations or individuals who wish to enter into a CRADA with a Naval laboratory are encouraged to communicate with the nearest Navy Offices of Research and Technology Applications (ORTA) representative or communicate directly with any laboratory known to work on a technology of interest.
