Dual-use technology has the potential to generate new revenues for the defence contractors, which house a multitude of technologies within their portfolios and R&D programmes. However, dual-use is not always a clear concept, it needs to be identified, defined, and understood so companies can make the most of it. In this paper, with an aim to facilitate the approach of dual-use technology, historical approaches will be highlighted, the inherent challenges of commercialising defence technology will be analysed, and potential business models and route to market will be introduced.
