Innovative Productivity, Inc. (IPI), a non-profit corporation, now provides Kentucky companies with access to Air Force technologies and technical assistance through a memorandum of understanding with the Wright Technology Network, (WTN). Building upon its already successful technology transfer and assistance programs, developed by the Manufacturing Technology Transfer Center, (MTTC) which IPI operates for the US Navy, and an established network of over 7,000 Kentucky companies, IPI provides WTN with a strong Kentucky presence.
To facilitate its technology transfer agenda, IPI has formed partnerships with: the National Tooling and Machining Association, Associated Industries of Kentucky, Kentucky Technology Service, and state and regional economic development organizations. In addition, IPI has working agreements with: the University of Louisville, University of Kentucky, Purdue University, Oak Ridge Centers for Manufacturing Technology, the Institute for Advanced Manufacturing Sciences, and the Edison Welding Institute to provide technical assistance and training for IPIs small business customers. These partnerships also strengthen the WTN-Kentucky effort and provide increased opportunities for Air Force Laboratories to interact with business, academia and state and local organizations.
IPI, through the MTTC, also works directly with the US Navy, the Marine Corps, and the US Army at Ft. Knox, Kentucky, to assist these branches of the military with various technology problems. This provides the Air Force Research Laboratory with the opportunity to present Air Forces technologies to the other services, thereby leveraging the resources spent to develop those technologies and associated technical capabilities.
In addition to technology transfer, IPI:
