TEAMER Requests for Technical Support are a collaboration between the technology developer or researcher, and the facility chosen to help meet the recipients technical objectives. Prior to applying for support, recipients are required to have discussed their technical objectives with the facility to ensure the facility has the capability to assist and provide the necessary support. Only approved test facilities are eligible to provide technical support.
