High-tech companies invest R&D efforts into pacing technologies. R&D projects enable companies to respond to critical drivers for innovation and to R&D needs in technology domains to develop new IPS2.

This paper presents the Sustainable-Knowledge (S-K) model for innovation management in companies. This model focuses a new relation among R&D activities and the strategic driver of change towards new IPS2. This relation adds value to the technology-driven objectives within company’s strategic innovation perspective; following the ManuFuture approach to speed up IPS2 time-to-market.

An industry case in the space sector is reported for the critical driver “Safety and Security”.
