Technical Assistance -- WTN helps companies
obtain AFRL technical assistance in an informal and timely manner. As a bonus,
companies are not charged for AFRL technical efforts arranged via this mechanism.
The Ohio Nanotechnology Commercialization Initiative -- This initiative,
which has been funded by both The Ohio Department of Development and the
Propulsion Directorate of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), is
to expand the awareness and understanding of nanotechnology by Ohio's
Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB) Educational
Outreach -- WTN provides direct on-site program support to the WPAFB Educational
Outreach Office. WTN operates and maintains Tech Trek, a mobile science van that
brings Air Force technology directly to schools in the community.
