Abstract

Our expertise will support BUCK-Is central concept of locating knowledge, supporting collaboration, and providing for workflow management. The vision is for a seamless, user-centered environment supporting real time access to space community knowledge. BENEFIT: TDKC has vigorously pursued commercialization as the ultimate goal of all of its SBIR projects, recognizing the need to leverage the initial Government and corporate investments with commercial and other Government funds to realize the full benefit of the project. These activities have included intensive study and development of commercialization strategies that work for projects such as those encompassed by GIANT. TDKC has evaluated the Technology Adoption Cycle presented by Moore, and adapted this model to fit the SBIR paradigm. Our commercialization plan provides a realistic and executable approach to commercialization that provides more than lip-service to the notion that SBIR-funded technologies should find commercial applicability; indeed our non-SBIR revenue exceeded SBIR revenue in 2007 a remarkable achievement in 4 years of business.
