Abstract: Abstract Strategic alliances among Defence Organizations could be embraced to approach the innovation process and organize Defence. Moreover, companies, Armed Forces and Defence Systems are creating relationships to take advantage around combined actions, coordinated all of them by the Ministry of Defence. Innovation management associated to knowledge is being used to growth in productivity. So this knowledge needs to be transferred from these alliances to business inter-organizational relationships and cooperation among firms. A strategy of technology and innovation facilitates the collaboration between technology-based companies and the Defence Sector. The purpose is to analyze the Knowledge & Innovation Management (KIM) and its influence on technology transfer, project management and performance. The results of this study show that strategic alliances favours knowledge management and innovation management. This KIM Model has a positive influence on the technology transfer which helps project management join with the Armed Forces and Defence System improving the companies’ performance.
