TECHNOLOGY MONITORING AND MAPPING
Identify technology gaps where risks may be high but opportunity is greater.
The Technology Monitoring and Mapping module identifies where material and manufacturing research is focused and where there are gaps. Focus areas identify technologies with low risk, while research gaps indicate greater risks and greater opportunities.
Understanding current and future technology gaps is crucial for existing life-cycle planning and new product development. VSAAM captures data from numerous research sources, including those in government and academia. The resulting data not only provides the number of different projects focused on any one area, but often includes the amount of money being spent on that research.
Whether identifying the challenges for new product development or looking for opportunities to fill unmet needs, the VSAAM Technology Monitoring and Mapping module can provide unique and valuable insights.
