CORE ACTIVITIES

  • Aeronautical Systems Center (ASC) High Performance Computer Modernization Program (HPCMP) -- WTN supports the HPCMP at Wright Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB) as a subcontractor to the prime contractor and systems integrator, the Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC). Functionally, WTN works closely with another subcontractor, the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) in Columbus, Ohio. OSC is the lead academic institution.


  • Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs) -- WTN facilitates AFRL and AFIT CRADAs with academia and industry. CRADAs are a major technology transfer thrust for WTN.


  • Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Commercialization -- Commercialization is a process in which AFRL and WTN first identify AFRL technologies with high commercial market potential. Then AFRL and WTN identify a company capable of developing, manufacturing, and marketing the technology in an improved or new commercial product.


  • Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Cooperative Agreements -- WTN facilitates Cooperative Agreements, which allow the Air Force to provide funding to a company to perform research and commercialization projects of high interest.


  • Department of Defense (DOD) Dual Use Science and Technology (DUS&T) -- WTN assists AFRL and companies interested in this joint program sponsored and conducted by the Army, Navy, and Air Force.


  • NASA Garrett Morgan Commercialization Initiative (GMCI) -- WTN assists small businesses in Southwestern Ohio obtain NASA expertise and technology through GMCI.


  • Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) -- WTN provides SBIR assistance to small businesses, including start-up companies at Ohio's Edison Technology Incubator; SBIR Phase II winner; and small, minority-owned or woman-owned businesses.


  • 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 plastics industry.


  • 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.
