The NSA Technology Transfer Program (TTP), located within the Research Directorate, establishes partnerships with industry, academia, and other government agencies. These partnerships help accelerate mission goals, advance science, foster innovation, and promote the growth and commercialization of technology originally created for Agency mission. Successful transfer of NSA technologies: 

  • Gives traction to the federal government's annual commitment to research and development, not totaling over $145 billion
  • Mobilizes mission solutions by engaging NSA personnel with trusted technology partners
  • Creates new companies, new job jobs, and new revenue
  • Strengthens the economy, which in turn strengthens national security

The NSA Technology Transfer Program (TTP) mission is to:

  • Establish partnerships to transfer NSA discoveries into commercial products and practical applications that strengthen national security and help grow the economy, and
  • Stimulate the exchange of expertise and capabilities between NSA and industry, academia, and other government agencies to advance NSA mission, technology, and innovation.

Our mission fulfills federal technology transfer legislation, White House Cross-Agency Priority (CAP) goals, and NSA mission objectives.
