Since the 1980’s the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has used technology readiness level (TRL) as a means to assess the maturity of a particular technology and a scale to compare technologies. In 1999, the Department of Defense (DoD) embraced a similar TRL concept in their programs. The TRL scale is a measure of maturity of an individual technology, with a view towards operational use in a system context. A more comprehensive set of concerns become relevant when this… Expand
