TechLink helps to establish license agreements between Department of Defense labs and industry, enabling companies to use DoD inventions to create new or improved products and services. There is no charge to either DoD labs or companies for our services. TechLink facilitates well over half of all license agreements between the DoD and industry nationwide. TechLink-facilitated agreements have transferred over a thousand DoD inventions to US industry, mostly to small businesses. By 2015, these agreements had resulted in over $1.6 billion in sales of new products and services.
We help companies to license DoD inventions so they can use those inventions to develop new or improved products and services
