Unconventional Concepts, Inc. (UCI) is a professional engineering and technical consulting firm specializing in issues related to Counter Terrorism analysis and preparedness response operations and national security.
Typical projects involve high value, time critical programs which do not necessarily fall under the purview of conventional consulting firms or government agencies.
Areas of expertise encompass development and transitioning of technologies from and to civilian, commercial, military, and government sectors. UCI is especially adept at finding and transitioning technologies that are developed for very specific high technology applications, but can be adapted and implemented in areas that were not their original purpose.
Additionally UCI does comprehensive strategy and policy reviews to validate concepts of application and operations. The broad background and vision of UCI has resulted in a number of technologies originally developed for specific defense and government initiatives being transitioned into other government programs, thereby leveraging taxpayer's dollars.
In addition, UCI has been instrumental in transitioning technologies through Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRDAs), Cooperative Agreements (CAs) and commercial licensing agreements to support university and commercial sector research and development. Dual use of existing technology leverages the high cost of development in new technology and finds alternative markets and applications where none were present before.
UCI has also been instrumental in new business development and has supported the transition of Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) training devices, medical testing equipment and antimicrobial solutions into commercial applications. UCI is a registered vendor in the United Nations Global Marketplace as a supplier to the United Nations.
