Technology Transfer

The Technology Licensing Office, or the TLO, is a unit in the DOST-Advanced Science and Technology Institute in charge of the commercialization, licensing, and technology transfer activities of the agency.

More than technology diffusion and transfer, the TLO also spearheads all Intellectual Property (IP) activities of the DOST-ASTI. From the identification and filing of the agency's potential IP assets to management and utilization of such, the TLO ensures that the outputs of DOST-ASTI’s research and development initiatives reach its stakeholders through commercialization.

Guided by the mission to Foster Innovation in the Field of Information and Communications Technology and Microelectronics by Bridging the Gap Between Technology and People using Technology Transfer Mechanisms, the TLO is tasked to facilitate the transition of the Agency’s R&D outputs by spearheading its IP assets management.

TLO works in cooperation with the following DOST Technology Transfer initiatives and projects:

Technology Trademarks


Licensing of Meteorological data Acquisition Stations for Information Dissemination (MASID) 

Flood Early Warning Station

a solar-powered alerting station equipped with an LED beacon and electronic siren that serve to warn residents of impending flooding in nearby areas.

Water Level Monitoring Station

a solar-powered weather station with an ultrasonic sensor that measures the varying levels of any body of water, particularly rivers, to help determine the risk of flooding in low-lying flood-prone areas.

Community Tsunami Alerting Station

a solar-powered alerting station equipped with an LED beacon and electronic siren that serve to warn coastal area communities for incoming tsunamis.

Meteorological Buoy Station

gathers meteorological and oceanographic sensor data, specifically air pressure and temperature, wind speed and direction, wave height and period, and sea surface temperature.

Agrometeorological Station

consists of a multi-parameter device that measures wind speed and direction, air temperature, humidity, and pressure, rain amount, duration, and intensity, soil moisture and temperature, solar radiation, and sunshine duration.

Automated Weather Station

a solar-powered weather station that stores, records, and acquires weather data through a multi-parameter sensor that measures air humidity, pressure, and temperature, wind speed and direction, and solar radiation.

Making the Data Available: Understanding Public Good

Public good, from the word itself, is something for everyone’s consumption such as products or services made available to the people. To determine whether something is a public good, it is expected to have two criteria. First, non-rivalrous, where there is always enough Read More
