Calling all corporate executives, capital providers, private equity groups, investment banks and anyone interested in new technologies from regional Navy labs.
Join Energetics Technology Center for the Navy Innovation Marketplace – an event featuring researchers and scientists from the Naval Air Warfare Centers – Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) and Weapons Division (NAWCWD) and Indian Head Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technology Division (IHEODTD). The event will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 7, at the Southern Maryland Higher Education Center.
This showcase will highlight U.S. Navy technologies currently available for license and/or partnerships. Technology groups represented include Photonics, Firearms Training and Safety and Sensors. The event will consist of technology pitches and presentations given by government researchers, inventors and scientists, all showcasing their innovative solutions to warfighter challenges while showing commercial applications for their designs.
“Researchers at NAWCAD generate groundbreaking inventions that not only benefit the warfighter, but often have commercial applications as well, improving the way we live, work and play on a daily basis,” stated Ms. Leslie Taylor, Executive Director, NAWCAD.
Mr. Ashley Johnson, Technical Director, IHEODTD added, “Technology transfer is the process by which these inventions are transformed into products in the marketplace, and we welcome investors and entrepreneurs who are interested in partnering with us through cooperative agreements or licensing.”
Keynote speakers for the event include TEDCO CEO George Davis. TEDCO helps transform innovative technology and life science businesses into high growth companies and provides entrepreneurs with capital, connections, and coaching. Davis will focus on tools for entrepreneurs who want to take advantage of these technologies from the federal labs.
The lunchtime keynote speaker, Dr. Charles Daitch, is the CEO and founder of Akonni Biosystems, a company that has grown through successful licensing of government technology. Dr. Daitch will provide insight to what is required of potential investors and how best to work through the technology readiness levels, ultimately leading to commercialization.
The program ends at 4:00 p.m. and all attendees are welcome and encouraged to tour St. Mary’s County’s new incubator, TechPort, at the regional airport complex. Tours and a reception will follow at TechPort.

Silver Spring, Md. (7/21/17) – On Tuesday, June 27th, business owners, prospective entrepreneurs and federal researchers gathered at Energetics Technology Center’s TechFire® incubator in White Oak to explore technologies available for license, and other R&D partnership and commercialization opportunities with scientists and engineers from the Army Research Laboratory (ARL). The event was co-sponsored by the Montgomery County Economic Development Corporation (MCEDC).
Located adjacent to the FDA campus in White Oak, ARL’s mission is to “discover, innovate, and transition science and technology to ensure dominant strategic land power”. ARL has a rich history of partnerships with industry and academia, and is an ardent supporter of technology transfer to the private sector in order to benefit both the warfighter and the nation. In 2013, ARL launched a new Open Campus Program which seeks to facilitate interactions and collaborations between ARL scientists and engineers in order to spur innovation and support small businesses and start-ups through increased licensing and collaboration opportunities.
During the technology showcase, ARL’s researchers presented their lab’s work and capabilities related to 3-D holographic and polarimetric imaging, micro-robotics/micro-actuators, cold spray technologies, and other technologies available for commercialization. A networking lunch followed, providing attendees the chance to network with ARL researchers and discuss possible collaborations and research synergies.
“To diversify our local economy, and promote innovation and entrepreneurship, we need to leverage our resources, and ARL is one of our region’s truly outstanding assets,” said David Petr, CEO of the Montgomery County Economic Development Corporation (MCEDC). MCEDC is the county’s newly privatized economic development organization, and is a co-sponsor of the event.
The workshop was held at ETC’s TechFire® incubator facility to provide private sector partners the opportunity to learn about the business support services available to entrepreneurs, technology start-ups, and small businesses. Additionally, the event included representatives from state-wide organizations to describe the mentoring, funding and networking opportunities available to technology start-ups across Maryland.
“ETC is excited to host networking events like this that are critical to both the region, and to the mission of organizations like ARL”, said Bob Kavetsky, CEO of ETC.

Energetics Technology Center “Techfire” Technology Business Incubation Program
Kim Mozingo, the Techfire program manager at the Energetics Technology Center, continued the technology theme.
“I think this is perfect that we are presenting on the heels of the SMTTPP presentation,” Mozingo said. “It feeds right into what we are all trying to accomplish in the region.”
Mozingo shared that Bob Kavetsky, the president and executive director at the Energetics Technology Center, recognized in 2013 that the southern Maryland region had a lot of intellectual property and thought it could be “fodder for start-ups;” he began to seek out ways to facilitate those start-ups by creating the Techfire Incubation program.
The organization receives funding from the Charles County Economic Development Department and has a memorandum of understanding with the College of Southern Maryland; with three entrepreneurs-in-residence, the program is focused on creating technology companies.
The Energetics Technology Center’s (ETC) TechFire incubation program announces today that their client, Motobriiz, LLC., successfully pitched their business at TEDCO’s 2015 Entrepreneur Expo at the BWI Marriott in Linthicum, Maryland. Expo attendance is estimated to be 700 entrepreneurs, ecosystem builders, supporters, and investors.
