What are they?  Why do they matter?  Who Uses them?  

What do YOU need to know about them?


Definition: Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) are a method used to measure and assess the maturity of a particular technology. They allow engineers, managers, and project personnel a consistent point of reference for figuring out how a technology is changing.

What is the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 

Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) are a method of estimating the technology maturity of Critical Technology Elements (CTE) of a program during the research, development, and deployment phase of the acquisition process. They are determined during a Technology Readiness Assessment (TRA) that examines program concepts, technology requirements and demonstrated technology capabilities. 

Purpose of Technology Readiness Level (TRL)

The purpose of Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) is to measure a system’s maturity of technology components.  The measurement allows project personnel to understand how much development a particular technology needs before being utilized. A TRL rating helps in measuring the progress of a project.

Technology Readiness Level (TRL) Scale

TRL is based on a scale from 1 to 9, with 9 being the most mature technology. Using TRLs enables consistent, uniform discussions of technical maturity across different technologies. Decision authorities will consider the recommended TRLs when assessing program risk.

Central Florida Tech Grove

The Central Florida Tech Grove is a hub for accelerating collaboration and innovation in defense modeling, simulation, training, and human performance.  Tech Grove is located in the Central Florida Research Park in Orlando, Florida which is the epicenter of the nation's largest cluster of government, industry, academic, and industry organizations developing and delivering training and simulation products for our nation's military. Tech Grove was established in 2020 through a Partnership Intermediary Agreement (PIA) between the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD) and the University of Central Florida Research Foundation.  Eight other Department of Defense entities are Tech Grove members: US Army Program Executive Office for Simulation Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI), US Air Force Agency for Modeling & Simulation (AFAMS), US Marine Corps Program Manager for Training Systems (PM TRASYS), US Army Simulation & Training Technology Center (STTC), US Army Futures Command Synthetic Training Environment Cross-Functional Team (STE CFT), Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL), Defense Health Agency (DHA), and the Office of Naval Research through the NavalX Central Florida Tech Bridge.
