Abstract:

The United States became and has continued to be the dominant military superpower in the world, based both on superior systems and superior embedded enabling technology - especially electronics, including sensors of many types. The term electronics is used here to denote the broader field of digital electronics, microwave, optical, and newer research areas- all of which are important today and in the fixture for diverse defense systems. The goal of the Department of Defenses science and technology programs is to maintain and further that dominance. Science and technology efforts yield benefits to the warfighter that are several orders of magnitude beyond the costs of their development. Electronic devices, components and systems form the core of all our advanced weapons systems, radars, satellites, communications, and command and control networks as well as portable electronics, for the warfighter on all platforms of future combat and intelligence systems of the 21 century.
