The Enterprise Center’s partners possess common resources which are valuable tools in the quest for commercialization of products or services, such as technologies available for licensing, advanced research, and intellectual property. They also possess unique and individual resources, as follows:
Arnold Engineering Development Center
AEDC operates specialized technologies in aerodynamics, wind tunnels, rocket and turbine engine test cells, space environmental chambers, arc heaters, and flight simulation.
B&W Y-12 develops useful new technologies that have commercial applications for the private sector through research and scientific application.
NASA Marshall Space Flight Center
NASA provides research resources, analysis of innovative technology or business need, and non-traditional sources to develop and transfer technology in support of national priorities and NASA’s mission.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory
ORNL operates an aggressive program to provide technology-based solutions through the licensing of intellectual property, and works closely with licensees through the commercialization stage of the technology.
SimCenter: National Center for Computational Engineering
The National SimCenter endeavors to solve real-world engineering problems in areas such as hydrodynamics, aerodynamics, propulsion, heat transfer, electromagnetics, and computational design optimization.
University of Tennessee Research Foundation
Many services are available through UTRF to help transform products for the commercial market, and support of start-up companies.
Georgia Institute of Technology
Georgia Tech offers a wide array of Economic Development services through the Enterprise Innovation Institute, the Advanced Technology Development Center, its Strategic Partners Office, and the Office of Technology Licensing.
University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
As a metropolitan university which houses a School of Engineering, laboratories which conduct scientific and academic research, as well as centers for advanced research, UTC is poised as a partner for business and economic growth.
Redstone is the heart of the Army’s rocket and missile programs. The work performed by Dr. Werner von Braun and his German rocket experts, which resulted in development of the first ballistic missile, led to the establishment of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center.
Redstone is home to the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command, the Space and Missile Defense Command, major components of the Defense Intelligence Agency, and the Missile Defense Agency.
Redstone performs basic and advanced research and development in areas that are vital to national defense and security.
