Abstract:

The Department of Defense DoD Science and Technology S and T community is challenged to accelerate delivery of technical capabilities to win the current fight and also prepare for an uncertain future. In addition to traditional threats, todays emerging asymmetric and cyber threats, proliferated Weapons of Mass Destruction WMD and an adversarys exploitation of globally available commercial technologies, there will continue to be challenges we will facewell into the future. With a change in the likelihood of future conflicts being nation state-on-nation state, our forces will need to be more agile and flexible with a wide range of capabilities to prevail across the widest possible spectrum of conflict. Operational needs are broadening to accommodate nontraditional missions as well as increasingly sophisticated technologies available in the realm of conventional warfare. This wide-ranging mission set is complicated by coalition operations and logistics challenges -- all of which come with increasing energy needs.
