Tech Focus

Each year the FLC Tech Focus spotlights a specific technology that addresses a public need and supports both federal laboratories’ research and technology transfer (T2) missions as well as government-wide, economy growth goals.

In 2019, the FLC's Technology Focus will center on autonomous systems expertise, capabilities, and technologies available at federal laboratories.
