From AFMC Tech Transfer news:
Express licensing was chosen because it could quickly and easily get the technology in the hands of developers for broad distribution and further improvements,” said Oelkers. “One express license was completed in only 13 business days. Most traditional license agreements take months to negotiate and complete.”
In the case of ATAK licenses, TechLink developed a system that permits companies to apply online and the Information Directorate to quickly review and approve the license requests. As a result, a license agreement is automatically generated. More than 100 ATAK invention licenses have been completed as of June 1, 2018.
