Abstract:

Superior technology yields victory on the battlefield with the minimum cost in human life. How we can retain the nations military technological preeminence in the face of massive cuts to the defense budget is the subject of this paper. Increased private sector participation is offered as a way to strengthen public and congressional support for military lab funding, enhance national competitiveness. and benefit the military through the transfer of technology from commercial to military. This paper proposes aggressive marketing of DoD lab capabilities to increase participation in commercial development activities.
