Technology Transfer

Air Force Technology Transfer (T2)

T2 logo
  The Air Force Technology Transfer (T2) Program was created to ensure Air Force science and engineering activities are transferred or intentionally shared with state and local governments, academia and industry. The exchange of knowledge, expertise, equipment, and testing facilities leverages the Department of Defense (DoD) research and development investment.

The Air Force T2 Program office is located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio. 

Air Force Mission: fly, fight and win... in Air, Space and Cyberspace

Available Air Force Facilities


Through technology transfer agreements, it’s possible to partner with the Air Force to use unique, state-of-the-art testing facilities. Many facilities can be accessed directly by commercial companies and universities through T2 agreements. At other facilities Air Force personnel can conduct testing on behalf of the agreement partner. There are many possibilities. This list is a snapshot of the facilities across the Air Force that can be accessed through Technology Transfer agreements. To learn more, please call (937) 904-9830.
