Rapid Technology Deployment Program (RTD)
On March 13, 2020, President Trump officially declared the coronavirus pandemic a national emergency. To support the national efforts, many innovations at Sandia can and should be transitioned to practice as expeditiously as possible, without unnecessary delay or burden on our partners in industry. The Rapid Technology Deployment Program aims to get Sandia’s ideas and technology into industry as quickly and seamlessly as possible during this time of need.
Any U.S. company will be able to obtain a term-limited, non-negotiable, royalty-free, non-exclusive license under any available Sandia-owned United States patent that is not otherwise subject to a contractual obligation.
Licensees: Any U.S. entity, company, university
Term: Now until December 31, 2020
Please note: Rapid Technology Deployment license agreements do not include technical support. For information regarding funding opportunities for technical support, please visit Sandia's Technology Partnerships site.
