Presidential Holdings was developed for the purpose of utilizing its team of professional military and private sector consultants in areas of Home Land Defense, Military, Law Enforcement and Emergency Medical Service. Presidential Holdings also provides advice to its clients relating to mergers, acquisitions, sales, marketing and other business development strategies. The primary mission is to provide high impact results that are effective and sustainable. When applicable, Presidential Holdings guides companies in the application process in obtaining governmental Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADA) with the military, law enforcement agencies, EPA and other industry segments.
Under a CRADA, engineers and scientists at the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division (NAWCWD) work cooperatively with their peers in industry and academia on mutually beneficial research and development. Both partners may contribute resources, services, facilities and equipment. Among the services, a CRADA provides direct access to federally developed science and technology.
A Cooperative Research and Development Agreement is a written agreement between a private or public company and a governmental agency to work together on a project. By entering into a CRADA, the federal government and non-federal partners can optimize their resources and cost- effectively perform research by sharing costs of this research. The collaborating partner agrees to provide funds, personnel, services, facilities, equipment or other resources needed to conduct a specific research or development effort while the federal government agrees to provide similar resources but not funds directly to the partner.
The CRADA vehicle provides incentives that can help speed the commercialization of federally development technology, making it an excellent technology transfer tool. The government protects any propriety information brought to the CRADA effort by the partner. This provides a true collaborative opportunity. Federal scientists can work closely with their non-federal counterparts, exchanging ideas and information while protecting the company secrets. Also, all parties can mutually agree, if they so desires, to keep research results emerging from the CRADA confidential and free form disclosure through the Freedom of Information Act for up to 5 years. CRADA's also allow flexibility in patenting and patent licenses or permitting on partner to retain exclusive rights to a patent or patent license.
The company will also guide and assist its clients in the application process to the Defense Advance Research Projects (DARPA). The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is the central research and development organization for the Department of Defense (DoD). It manages and directs projects for DoD, and pursues research and technology where risk and payoff are both very high and where success may provide dramatic advances for traditional roles and missions.
Our mission is to seek out technologies or services that may have applications towards Homeland Defense, military, governmental security agencies, police and emergency medical services by introducing, guiding and assisting when applicable those companies through the governmental application process.
