Virginia Tech connects research, products for national security

Virginia Tech is claiming success in connecting its research to commercial products for national security.

A group called the Virginia Tech Intelligence and Defense Executive Alumni, or VT-IDEA, will hold an exhibition of new technology later this month. It’s already seen commercialization of remote smartphone wiping technology. It also cites development of a product to foil radio signal eaves-dropping.

The group is one of several university-based economic development programs. VT-IDEA got started in 2009 and consists of senior government and national security industry officials who went to Virginia Tech.
