Abstract : The 2010 National Aeronautics Research and Development Plan (R&D Plan) represented the Federal consensus regarding national aeronautics R&D challenges, goals, and supporting objectives. Key to the success of the R&D Plan is a need for improved interagency collaboration to best manage and use the Nation's aeronautics research, development, test, and evaluation (RDT&E) infrastructure. Recognizing this, the National Aeronautics Research and Development Policy that guides Federal aeronautics research and development (R&D) through 2020, directs relevant Federal departments and agencies to develop a plan for managing the infrastructure necessary to achieve the goals and objectives in the R&D plan. The Infrastructure Plan is part of the Administration's sustained emphasis on interagency planning to define and achieve high-priority national aeronautics R&D goals and objectives. It highlights areas in which stronger interagency coordination will enable improved productivity form important national investments in aeronautics RDT&E infrastructure. Innovative interagency management processes and policies will assist the Federal departments and agencies in achieving the goals and objectives in the R&D Plan, thus contributing to the economic growth and security of the Nation, while assuring its continued technological leadership in aeronautics.
