The mission of FirstLink is to connect Department of Defense laboratories to companies and entrepreneurs that can bring new technologies to market that service the needs of our nation’s First Responders, such as police, fire fighters, and EMTs.

FirstLink achieves this goal by facilitating the transfer of technologies between these two groups. These services are primarily funded by the Department of Defense and are provided as a public service at no or minimal cost.

FirstLink is program supported by Pittsburgh Gateways Corp. and Advanced Manufacturing Technology Ventures LLC on behalf of the United States Department of Defense Office of Technology Transition and the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL).
