DefTech: Using DoD IP to strengthen your value proposition

Location image of event venue


The Southern Maryland Innovation and Tech (SMIT) initiative invites you to learn more about the Maryland Defense Technology Commercialization Center (DefTech).

Intellectual Property from our federal labs has been a catalyst in creating useful commercial products that permeate and improve our lives. Your cell phone is a great example as are the airbags in your car which owe their existence to our own Maryland based Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Indian Head.

Join us to learn how DefTech can be used as a resource for your business!
Hear from businesses that worked with DefTech to successfully commercialize products strengthened by federally developed IP; learn the expectations of the Technology Transfer professionals who provide access to their IP as well as other tools successful businesses use to access the expertise and technology available at DoD Labs.
