Abstract:

Every weapon system in the U.S. inventory today required decades of direct investment in critical enabling technologies. These systems exist because of the technologies and concepts developed by teams of dedicated researchers at our universities, defense laboratories, test centers and industrial contractors. The DoD is committed to maintaining a legacy of technological supremacy at an affordable cost. The Departments FY 1997 budget submission contains a prudent and relevant mix of defense technology investments. This program is needed to produce a robust set of innovative technology options for tomorrows weapon systems. It secures the Departments long term modernization strategy meets the national security needs of the nation and preserves a legacy of technological superiority for U.S. forces in the 21st Century.
