(RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.) - Fuentek, LLC, one of the world's leading intellectual property (IP) and technology transfer consulting firms, is pleased to announce they have been awarded a 5-year contract with NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center (AFRC). Reaffirming Fuentek's quality work and expertise, this contract continues a long-standing partnership between the two organizations. Fuentek has been a trusted partner of NASA for over 16 years, helping the agency with technology transfer and commercialization services.

"We are proud to continue our longtime collaboration with AFRC," said Laura A. Schoppe, Founder and President of Fuentek, LLC. "Their efforts to foster and share their technology advances globally are truly inspiring, and we are delighted to work with them in these worthy efforts."

Fuentek has worked closely with the technology transfer program at NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center since 2007, when it was called Dryden Flight Research Center. Since then, Fuentek has collaborated with the center's Technology Transfer Office to achieve a significant increase in signed and in-the-pipeline licensing and partnership deals. Some of the more recent successes include the license of a sense-and-avoid system for drones (known as unmanned aerial vehicles or UAVs) by Vigilant Aerospace Systems, a startup in Oklahoma, and the license of an antenna platform for automatically tracking UAVs by startup Mobile Antenna Platform Systems Inc. Among its many other accomplishments at NASA Armstrong, Fuentek has also helped secure an exceptional number of awards for the center's researchers and technologies.

Additionally, under this contract Fuentek will be continuing its support of NASA Armstrong's Chief Technologist and NASA's Flight Opportunities program, which advances innovative space technologies and stimulates growth of the commercial spaceflight industry.
