Abstract:

The Army s FY16 projected defense budget continues on a declining trend necessitating end strength reductions and deferring some modernization programs. The Army s Operating Concept to Win In a Complex World requires a more efficient means to develop an increasingly capable Army while meeting affordability levels. Discovering and developing technologies to ensure battlefield dominance is a key component of Army modernization even under fiscal constraints. The research investigates how collaboration between Government Research, Development, and Engineering RDEC organizations and industry can further enhance the Army s ability to meet this important mission in defense of the nation.
