TRL - Technology Readiness Level

Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) are a measurement system used to assess the maturity level of a particular technology. Each technology project is evaluated against the parameters for each technology level and assigned a TRL rating based on the progress. There are nine technology readiness levels. TRL 1 is the lowest, and TRL 9 is the highest. 

A TRL number is obtained once the description in the diagram has been achieved. For example, successfully achieving TRL 4 (lab environment) does not move the technology to TRL 5. TRL 5 is achieved once component/ breadboard validation is in a relevant environment. The technology remains TRL 4 until the relevant environmental validation is complete.
