Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific (SSC Pacific) is the U.S. Navy's research, development, test, and evaluation laboratory and fleet support center for command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance.
The Technology Transfer (T2) Office makes it easy for commercial businesses or start-up companies to access and implement SSC Pacific's innovative technologies. T2's mission is to facilitate and enhance the transfer of intellectual property resources and information between SSC Pacific and the business community in an effort to improve the commercial value of inventions and creative work.
The Government's interest in patents parallels that of private industry although the Government does not compete in the commercial market. One reason the Government obtains patents is to transfer technology developed with Government research and development funds to the public and private sector. Intellectual property, such as patent applications, patents, and other forms of protection that the Government receives, may be licensed to interested parties on a royalty-bearing basis who agree to commercialize the invention for the benefit of the general public.
