Available Technologies

Please Note: The technologies listed below are not available to the public at this time. These technologies are in the early stages of research and require further development before they are ready for the marketplace. The VA is currently in the process of identifying potential companies who may be interested in licensing and/or further developing the technology through Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADA). Through cooperative research initiatives such as these, it is our hope and goal that commercial products will be fully developed and made available to benefit veterans and others.
