Because each federal laboratory is unique in makeup and mission, each of us approaches the challenge of commercializing our technologies in a unique way. Sharing these unique procedures, as well as successful and unsuccessful transfer experiences, with one another can give us new insights into our own problems and challenges. This paper will discuss the technology commercialization processes used at the NASA Lewis Research Center. It will focus on experiences and strategies that suggest ways to deal with challenges brought on by the changing federal research environment. One such challenge is finding new sources to fund projects that develop the `bridging technologies' necessary to convert the aerospace technology to commercial technology.
