Industry Outreach Overview

Our Industry outreach program enables us to engage with other military organizations, private industry, and academia on critical and emerging issues, trends, technologies and business opportunities in training and simulation. This effort of collaboration and partnerships allow us to establish mutually beneficial relationships and allow us to operate effectively from a cost, schedule and performance perspective.

Training and Simulation Industry Symposium (TSIS)

 

TSIS Logo                              

The TSIS is the annual mid-year opportunity to network and interact with procurement officials for Training and Simulation products and services from the Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force. The focus is to provide insight into opportunities forthcoming in the near to mid future.

                                                              

The Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation, and Education Conference (I/ITSEC)

161130-N-AT895-042-I/ITSEC 2016

Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. John Richardson delivers opening remarks for a panel discussion during I/ITSEC 2016.                  

The Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation, and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) promotes cooperation among the Armed Services, industry, academia and other national and international organizations in pursuit of improved training and education programs, identification of common training issues, and development of multiservice programs.

NAWCTSD was a charter participant in the first such conference when it was initiated in 1966 as the Naval Training Device Center/Industry Conference. The conference has evolved and expanded to include the Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and other Federal agencies.

Each year, researchers from NAWCTSD demonstrate a wide variety of advanced training solutions for aviation, surface, undersea, land, and specialized requirements. NAWCTSD Business Support personnel are also on hand to discuss business opportunities with members of industry.

The conference is normally held each year at the Orange County Convention Center on International Drive in Orlando, Florida. Our I/ITSEC booth is always centrally located on the conference exhibition floor. We would welcome the opportunity to meet you.

Working Groups

Integrated Product Teams (IPT)


The Integrated Product and Process Development (IPPD) is a management technique that simultaneously integrates all essential acquisition activities through the use of multidisciplinary teams to optimize the design, manufacturing and supportability processes. IPPD facilitates meeting cost and performance objectives from product concept through production, including field support. One of the key IPPD tenets is multidisciplinary teamwork through Integrated Product Teams (IPTs). These teams enable making the right decisions at the right time.

IPT Process Map

IPT Process Map

An IPT is a team of representatives from all appropriate functional disciplines working together to build a successful and balanced program, identify and resolve issues and provide recommendations to facilitate sound and timely decisions. The IPT is lead by the Project Manager (PJM) who ensures the proper mix of functional experts are represented.

The composition of the IPT depends upon the specific acquisition, its level of complexity and perceived risks involved in accomplishing the acquisition. The typical IPT will normally have a membership of at least the following:

  • Project Manager
  • Systems Engineer
  • Project Logistician
  • Contract Specialist

Partnerships

NAWCTSD enters into partnerships which offer significant benefits, such as lower costs, collaborative efforts, and development of commercial sources. Lower costs are achieved through cost sharing, expert collaboration, and leveraging of resources including facilities and equipment. Working together allows "re-use" versus "re-development" and joint versus independent development. Development of commercial sources allows transition of Federally-developed technology and uses the strength of the free enterprise system. By pursuing shared objectives, the partners are able to work as a team.

Partnership mechanisms which we utilize include:

  • Cooperative Research and Development Agreement
  • Memorandum of Understanding
  • Memorandum of Agreement
  • Inter-service Support Agreement
  • Interagency Agreement
  • Education Partnership Agreement
  • Commercial Service Agreement
  • Licensing Agreement

Team Orlando

Team Orlando Logo

Team Orlando is a partnership of Central Florida-based military, federal government, industry and academic institutions which has united around a common individual mission: improve human performance through the use of modeling, simulation, and training technologies.

Technology Transfer

 

Federal Technology Transfer (T2) legislation has been in place since 1980 to facilitate the transfer of federally developed technologies to the private sector as well as academic institutions and state & local governments. Federal and non-federal partners have the opportunity to work together on mutually beneficial research using instruments called Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs). T2 legislation also promotes the licensing of patented technologies developed in the federal laboratories for commercial applications.

NAWCTSD predominantly uses CRADAs in transferring technologies to non-Federal organizations. Licensing Agreements and Commercial Services Agreements are also vehicles for T2. Sometimes, partnerships with Federal organizations and other Department of Defense (DOD) entities facilitate dual-use and transfer of NAWCTSD developed technologies.

 

Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA)

A CRADA is a legal instrument that allows NAWCTSD, a federal laboratory, to engage in collaborative efforts with a non-federal partner. Research and development performed under a CRADA must be collaborative and consistent with the mission of the federal laboratory. CRADA partners may contribute personnel, services, and property. The federal partner cannot contribute funds to the non-federal partner, but the non-federal partner may contribute funds. The non-federal partner may receive a non-exclusive license to inventions made during the performance of the CRADA effort. The non-federal partner may obtain an exclusive license to any inventions made during the performance of the CRADA effort; license should be for reasonable consideration. Data generated under a CRADA may be protected from public disclosure for up to five years.

 

Patent Licensing Agreement (PLA)

Research performed at NAWCTSD may produce patented, innovative discoveries of commercial value. These patents are available for licensing to the private sector. PLAs can be non-exclusive, exclusive or partially exclusive. Navy and Marine Corps licenses are subject to an irrevocable, royalty-free right of government to practice the licensed invention. The licensee must have a plan for commercializing the invention.

 

Commercial Services Agreement (CSA)

Through a CSA industry can leverage NAWCTSD's research, development, test & evaluation capabilities. This Agreement is a type of contract (non-FAR based) whereby NAWCTSD can be directly paid by industry to perform services that are unique to the laboratory and not commercially available elsewhere. NAWCTSD can provide facilities and technical expertise to allow industry to capitalize on public investments of unique capabilities.

 

If you have any questions, please send us an e-mail at Technology Transfer Team .

Acquisition

NAWCTSD’s acquisition process can be identified by three primary phases; these are:

  1. Requirements Analysis
  2. Acquisition
  3. Support

The acquisition process at NAWCTSD begins with the receipt of a requirement. The requirement can come from many sources. These include: Initial Capabilities Document, Capability Development Document, Capability Production Document, Navy Training Plan, existing curriculum, and many others. That requirement is then categorized as a particular type of work such as new training system procurement, device modification, services, life cycle support, or front end analysis. We then conduct market research, further document the requirement based on the market research, make a commerciality determination, and then propose the acquisition strategy to procure the requirement. Depending on the scope of the program, the following steps will then occur:

  • Develop an acquisition package to include the Request For Proposals (RFP)
  • Evaluate proposals
  • Award contract
  • Conduct design reviews
  • Conduct acceptance testing
  • Establish Ready for Training and Initial Operational Capability
  • Conduct interim and long term life cycle support
