DoD Patent Marketing Guide
The Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division (NAWCWD) and TechLink collaborated for the past two years in creating a guide to help the DoD effectively market their patents to industry. This guide assists the Office of Research and Technology Applications (ORTA) non-technical staff to decipher and convert “rocket science” patent vernacular into highly effective technology transfer data that industry can quickly understand. This “A to Z,” step-by-step guide documents a new process that makes the final promotional write-ups extremely attractive to industry. It is a helpful tool for beginners and advanced writers alike.
The goal of the guide is to replicate NAWCWD’s successful patent-licensing-enhancement methodology across the DoD. The self-help, full-color guide includes numerous customized forms and sample emails. The training guide is under 40 pages and can be read in less than two hours. This initial guide will be evolutionary in nature and will continue to improve as we receive valuable ideas and input from ORTA writers from throughout the DoD.
