Broaden Our Impact on Industry & Community and Supplement our Mission Activities
Independent Research & Development (IR&D)
Technical Inter Change (TIM) Reviews
PURPOSE: Communicate the TACOM-ARDEC technology needs to industry
and help focus their future IR&D efforts on DoD/Army/TACOM-ARDEC
weapons system needs
KEY CHARACTERISTICS:
 One day review attended by key technology areas experts and scientists
where the government and contractors review programs/technologies of mutual
interests
 Creates a process that encourages unique partnership with industries that
has substantial interest in science and technologies that could bring maximum
benefits to the DoD, Army and TACOM-ARDEC
 Provides industries the information and feedback they need to effectively
implement their IR&D programs
