I am pleased to present the FY 2009-2010 Defense Technology Security Administration DTSA Strategic Plan. This plan sets a clear direction for what we are trying to achieve as an organization and articulates our contribution to the technology security program of the Department of Defense DoD. DTSA must remain vigilant in securing critical U.S. technology and preventing hostile states and non-state actors from acquiring technologies that could prove detrimental to U.S. national security. We must also ensure that our technology protection activities continue to support DoD efforts to maintain a strong technologically superior defense industrial base. This requires us to retain technological expertise and to collaborate with our partners and allies to protect important technologies, and to increase our collective capabilities. At the core of DTSAs mission is the imperative of retaining a military technology advantage for the United States and its partners. This imperative requires us to work to prevent proliferation of critical technologies that could imperil U.S. and coalition forces, while helping to establish conditions that encourage U.S. technological development and innovation and permit U.S. industry to compete on a level playing fi eld in the global market. Ideally, this approach retains our technological edge for the U.S. and allied warfighter and increases the life-span value of U.S. and allied direct investments in technology development and acquisition. It is therefore incumbent upon us to develop a strategy that takes into account all aspects of technology security, and to implement that strategy through effective policies and practices that are as transparent as possible.
