Abstract:

The DoD Basic Research Program has long played a crucial role in the development of technology and in the education and training of scientific personnel required to support continuing technical advances critical to maintaining superior military capabilities. As the initial and fundamental step in the process of scientific discovery, Basic Research can have considerable impact on the development cycle time and the operational capability of a broad range of military systems. This Basic Research Plan BRP addresses these important issues by providing a strategy that is flexible with respect to current budget priorities but also properly structured to effectively respond to requirements of the warfighter. The BRP complements two other DoD Science and Technology ST planning documents the Joint Warfighting ST Plan and the Defense Technology Area Plans DTAPs. Together the three documents reflect a comprehensive strategic planning process designed to significantly enhance the quality of the overall ST program.
