Paper Abstract

the role of the National Laboratory in technology transfer is to help industry implement the latest technology. The National laboratory must have a unique capability that does not compete with tax paying companies. Typically a National Laboratory will demonstrate the benefit of applying NDE to a company's production line. The company then contracts with a vendor to supply a production inspection system based on the laboratory's demonstration. Both the company and the vendor benefit from the participation with the National Laboratory. The company improves the quality of its products and the vendor has a new product to market. The purpose of this paper is twofold: (1) to present a brief overview of NDE capabilities and application activities within the National Laboratory System and (2) to identify NDE point-of- contacts at each laboratory.
