Our Ultimate Goal Technology Transfer
  • KEY ARMY ESOH GOAL DRIVE INNOVATION
  • The Army will match its capability to innovate
    and adapt with its need to do so in order to
    train, equip, sustain, and operate. This requires
    that we accelerate the transfer of technologies
    in a timely and cost effective manner to meet
    current and future requirements. The Army will
    seek solutions and tools that improve efficiency
    and reduce cost while protecting human health and
    the environment
  • US Army Strategy for the Environment, 2004.

Why is Tech Transfer Important?
  • Drive Technology Implementation - Past RD
    investments in DoD technologies have led to the
    development of a wide variety of new processes,
    systems, and materials. Yet only a small portion
    of these innovations successfully make it into
    operational use.
  • Demonstrate Responsible Use of Funding - Given
    tightening RD budgets, pressure is increasing
    for clear/ direct returns on the RD dollar to
    support our warfighters. 

CHALLENGE It is now more important than ever to
improve DoDs track record for completing
successful transfers and achieving
sustainability, cost andreadiness benefits.

NDCEE Technology Transfer
  • Technology transfer is a major goal of the NDCEE
    program and a fundamental aspect of the NDCEE
    technical approach to all tasks
  • Technology Transfer Definition The integrated
    set of activities necessary to field and operate
    validated, cost-effective ESOH technologies for
    DoD installations and weapon systems.
  • NDCEEs Technology Transfer Goals are to
  • Ensure DOD ESOH stewardship, sustainability and
    environmental compliance.
  • Demonstrate quantifiable performance improvements
    supporting DoDs war-fighting readiness and
    operations
  • Generate economic returns on DoDs RD
    investments
  • Recent NDCEE Tech Transfer Results
  • During FY 2004, the NDCEE completed 56 projects,
    provided 74 technology products and tools to DoD
    customers, completed 19 dem / vals at DoD
    installations, and transferred 6 technologies to
    DoD facilities

Example Technology Transfer Best Practices -
Basic Requirements
  • Committed Customer and Site With a
    High-Priority, Validated ESOH Need
  • Mature, Appropriate Technology No substitute
    for this
  • Adequate Funding Specific line items time
    phased as needed
  • Stakeholder Involvement Early in the transfer
    process
  • Transfer Champion Consistent leader who follows
    through, accountable for success (select the
    right people at the appropriate levels)
  • Upfront Transfer Planning Plan for desired
    outcome tech implementation
  • Operational Testing Appropriate Dem / Val tests
  • Effective Communications Throughout the entire
    process with all involved
  • Appropriate Tasking in the SOW
  • Specify technology transfer as a task purpose
  • Target a high-priority, validated DoD ESOH need
  • Identify specific customer site(s) for transfer
    if tests succeed
  • Identify specific end-user, stakeholder
    organization(s) DoD non-DoD

7
NDCEE Technical Approach
  • Analyze customer ESOH needs and solution
    requirements
  • Identify potential technology solutions and
    down-select best alternatives
  • Plan and conduct demonstration testing and
    identify training requirements
  • Prepare the technical and business case for
    technology investment
  • Install, optimize and startup the system for
    operational use, including operator / maintenance
    personnel training
  • Prepare, disseminate outreach materials and
    conduct follow-up visits

8
Technology Transfer and Planning Tools What is
a Technology Roadmap?
  • A Technology Roadmap is a time-based, sometimes
    visual description of future capability
    requirements and possible development pathways
    for the emerging technologies, activities and
    resources needed to achieve them on time
  • Documents future capability targets (E.g. Ft
    Carson plans to sustain all facility and mobility
    systems from renewable sources and reduce total
    water purchased from outside sources by 75)
  • Displays candidate technology solution options
    and development steps along with descriptive data
    on performance, costs, barriers, drivers, etc
  • Shows linkages and dependencies between roadmap
    elements and events
  • Purpose To provide a 1 stop shopping
    resource for key long-term planning information
    to prepare for future actions with built in
    flexibility for adjustments

Example Roadmap Types
  • Capability targets Required technical,
    organizational or information-based capabilities
    that must be available at a future date.
    EXAMPLE Ft. Lewis plans to sustain all
    activities on post using renewable energy sources
    and generate all electricity on post by 2025
  • Technology alternatives Technologies that have
    the potential to help achieve needed capability
    by the future target date. EXAMPLES
    Photovoltaics, bio-fueled micro-turbines, wind
    turbines.
  • Acquisition milestones Specific acquisition
    events that must be achieved by selected dates to
    ensure that technologies are available and on
    line. EXAMPLE What must be submitted to POM
    funding by what dates?
  • Institutional Actions - Specific issues, actions
    or decisions that must be addressed by selected
    dates to ensure that all the pieces of the
    technology and acquisition roadmaps come
    together. EXAMPLE Coordination of Ft ____
    energy plans with surrounding community energy
    assessment must be completed by ___.

Technology Roadmap Process
  • Example roadmap development process that can be
    customized

16
How are Roadmaps Useful?
  • Applications
  • Comprehensive tracking of progress against goals
  • Identify and manage critical pathways and
    upcoming events to provide lead time for major
    actions
  • Provides strategic framework for individual
    technology and infrastructure decisions
  • Conduct contingency / what if planning analysis
  • Benefits
  • Provides users with defined pathway options
    forward
  • Standardized awareness of key activities,
    elements
  • Decision making resource that helps anticipate
    the nature and timing of necessary choices
  • Communication mechanism for information sharing
    networking
  • Tool for consensus building
