Abstract : The DoD Science and Technology program is divided into three areas, each designed to bring technology to various stages of maturity. The Basic Research (6.1) program exploits and identifies technological opportunities and provides an important interface with university and industry research. The Applied Research (6.2) program matures technology opportunities and evaluates technical feasibility for increased warfighting capability. The non system-specific Advanced Technology Development (6.3) program demonstrates technologies to speed the transition of matured technology into the system-specific Demonstration/Validation (6.4) program or directly into Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) (6.5). The Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP) is the Army's strategic plan for the science and technology program; it consists of two volumes. This volume 1 has these seven chapters: (1) Strategy and Overview; (2) Science and Technology Integration With Army XXI Requirements Determination; (3) Technology Transition; (4) Technology Development; (5) Basic Research; (6) Infrastructure; and (7) Technology Transfer.
