This Supplement to the Presidents FY 2003 Budget describes the Federal Networking and Information Technology Research and Development NITRD Program, the unique endeavor of Federal agencies collaboratively engaged in advanced research and development in these technologies. The multiagency NITRD portfolio spans a balanced, diverse set of long-term, fundamental research efforts in all aspects of large-scale and broadband networking and information technologies. This ongoing research provides leading-edge networks, technologies, and tools for vital Federal missions, drives innovation throughout the U.S. economy, and supports the research talent that sustains U.S. global leadership in science and technology. The first computers, the Internet, the graphical user interface, high-end parallel processing, the first end-to-end optical networks, advanced computational modeling and simulation, and search engine technologies are just a few of the results of Federal information technology IT research that have fueled the digital revolution from which we all benefit. Today the NITRD Program continues to be the Nations primary source of fundamental technological breakthroughs and skilled human resources in the advanced computing, networking, software, and information management technologies on which our 21st century infrastructure and quality of life will rely.
