ATI manages an extensive portfolio of federally funded research, development, and prototype collaborations. These consortia represent business opportunities across a broad range of technology domains, including shipbuilding and ship repair, advanced materials, medical technologies, electromagnetic spectrum capabilities, space technologies, and rapid prototyping. Despite their differences, these fields share a need for diverse teams of large and small companies, nonprofit organizations, and academic institutions working together to develop effective technology solutions.

Some ATI-managed collaborations are traditional FAR-based consortia. Some are Other Transaction authority models that encourage participation by “nontraditional” organizations (firms that have not recently worked for the Government). Participation requirements are unique to each collaboration.
