ATI combines the flexibility of the OT model with the power of collaboration.
As an objective, third party Consortium Management Firm, ATI recruits, organizes, and leads OT authority consortia, overcoming traditional barriers to teaming, such as geographical and organizational divides and intellectual property issues. Using a collaborative approach that can be applied to any set of complex challenges, we lead diverse industry and academic organizations to develop groundbreaking technology solutions. Through collaboration, we help team members—often competitors—reach consensus, establish priorities, and produce technology solutions that benefit Government, industry, and ultimately the Nation.
ATI currently manages 12 OT authority consortia, including the longest-standing one, the largest one (as measured by membership, project awards, and annual funding throughput), and the only one specifically chartered to attract private sector funding for the government sponsor’s research priorities. Our current R&D portfolio represents a broad array of technology areas, including shipbuilding and ship repair, advanced materials, medical technologies, electromagnetic spectrum capabilities, space technologies, and rapid prototyping.
For more than two decades, ATI-led collaborations have delivered valuable technologies and process improvements to the DoD, federal agencies, and industry. We pioneered and perfected the art of collaboration management.
