Abstract:

The Balanced Technology Initiative BTI is a program started by the 99th Congress to enable the Department of Defense to correct gaps in U.S. conventional warfighting capabilities. The BTI program seeks quantum jumps in capabilities, not evolutionary improvements, and strives to realize these jumps by applying advanced technology. This is an edited version of the second annual report to the Congress. In the past year, the program has achieved several noteworthy milestones and successes. The report highlights accomplishments, explains management actions, describes new projects and expanded projects, and discusses potential future projects. The report briefly describes the operational utility, technical approach, progress to date, and planned activities for 25 BTI projects in 6 major areas including Advanced Armament, Target Acquisition, Battle Management - C3I, Smart Weapons, Special Operations, and High Power Microwaves.
