Abstract

This academic article addresses the study of the methodology implemented in the transfer


of Mesh networking technology for military emergency operations. The technology was


adopted as a medium of the technology transfer from the research and development project


to an academic and industrial sector. The engaging activities included lectures and technology


demonstration from the transferor to transferees. A group of experts with experience in the field


was formally invited to join the forum. A questionnaire was a tool to assess the success of the


implemented technology transfer. More importantly, an ultimate goal of the technology transfer was


to facilitate a continued engaging activity on an application of the technology to support a research and development project that encompassed Mesh networking technology for military emergency operations. The study reveals that the technology transfer by means of facilitating the forum for the transfer and knowledge sharing between the transferor and the transferees extended applications of the technology, enhanced existing concepts and caused the conceptual design of subcomponents of the technology. Members of the joined engaging network managed to extend the technology based on their experience and expertise on top of their existing tools. The synthesis of the technology application was witnessed on the discussion for subcomponents of the technology that included Terrain Mapping with e-Bee UAV, Mobile Application for Response Unit (Mobile4RU) and Mobile Application for Disaster Management of DTI (Mobile4DTI), and Web/Map Applications. The awareness of the knowledge included three dimensional terrain mapping by e-Bee UAV, mobile applications and user interface development. The applications and awareness resulted from the activities in the forum will form the conceptual and technological extension of the technology. In addition, the lectures and technology demonstration  acted as the disclosure of the existing technology and declared an approach and requirements of how the research project would be conducted with the engaging members of the joined network as partners.
