#1 Diffusion of technology within potential adopter communities
Relevant Student Thesis Work
"An Analysis of Rapid Technology Transfer Solutions and Best Practices for use by the Department of Defense." LCDR Dennis Holden, USN.
There is often a long lag from the completion of DARPA-sponsored S&T development to adoption in the field. Some technologies never are adopted; others take a very long time to adopt. DARPA wants to accelerate implementation of these useful technologies and markedly improve the success rate of adoptions. The goal is to benchmark how well DARPA is transferring technology and to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of technology adoption across the agency portfolio. The Adaptive Execution Office (AEO) was established specifically to address these goals.
• Develop new methods, tools, and practices for accelerating technology adoption from DARPA (and other S&T) development efforts to operations.
