The Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer’s (FLC) newest Chair, John Dement, is presenting at this year’s R&D 100 Conference in Orlando, Florida, on November 16.

Join John as he tours the many lab-to-market successes and details how FLC Business easily connects invaluable federal resources with the innovators who are changing the future.

FLC Business is a one-stop website for any business, agency, or academic institution to search all federal laboratories, facilities, equipment, patented technologies, funding opportunities and programs available for public access and collaboration. Never before has a site able to aggregate and house all federal laboratory resources into one site like FLC Business is built to do. By applying the latest software technology such as the open source Apache Solr search engine, FLC Business offers extremely versatile search capabilities for its users as its data continues to grow.

Success stories like GATR Technologies’ inflatable antenna system are now benefiting from an ongoing T2 relationship with NASA Glenn Research Center and leading to faster on-the-ground communications support for disaster relief efforts and military operations. Developed through a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract and license agreement, the inflatable antenna’s capabilities were refined with the help of NASA Glenn researchers’ expertise and facilities thanks to a Space Act Agreement (SAA). Since then, the GATR antenna system has been deployed to Afghanistan, South Africa, South America, Haiti, and South Korea to aid with natural disaster missions, and it has helped to change the satellite communications industry.

The R&D 100 Conference offers cross-disciplinary sessions that address a variety of important new developments. Keynote speakers and breakout dialogues provide R&D trends, case studies, and more as the conference creates collaborative spaces for sharing ideas and networking with industry peers.
