The Licensing process


Find the available technology relevant to your work. You can work directly with the GI or explore through Tech Link’s extensive IP database. If you want to learn more about a specific technology within the Rome Labs, we can get you in touch with the right people to learn more.


Once you feel confident about the technology, we will work with you on filling out a licensing application for a specific technology.


The Air Force Research Laboratory Information Directorate (AFRL/RI) Office of Research and Technology Applications (ORTA) will work with you to negotiate a licensing agreement and the appropriate fees. This part of the process takes the longest, so please budget your time accordingly.


Once a licensing agreement is signed, the AFRL/RI ORTA will give you access to the technology to use.


Licensing AFRL/GI technology is just one step of a bigger journey to grow your business. At GI, we offer support to help you successfully commercialize your product or service.

Radar combining synthetic
aperture mode with moving target identification

Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) is a form of radar that is used to create two- or three-dimensional images of objects, such as landscapes, and requires a wide bandwidth waveform. SAR uses the motion of the radar antenna over over a target region to provide finer spatial resolution than conventional stationary beam-scanning radars.
