Abstract

The article presents a study on the framework of a model that will evaluate the return on investment (ROI) of technology transfer in the U.S. It recounts that the technology transfer was done to maximize the ROI on research and development in the Department of Defense. It also presents an analysis on the individual Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRDAs) between the Air Force Research Laboratory and private firms using the model and the objective and subjective measures. Moreover, it uses a sensitivity analysis to identify the best CRDA choice over a range of parameter values.
