This document contains the remarks as prepared for delivery by the Honorable Zachary J. Lemnios. I am delighted to be here among this talented and diverse community of professionals whose goal it is collectively to advance innovation, technical excellence and global leadership in aviation and the science of flight. With your conference theme New Directions in Strategic and Tactical Missile Systems, YOU are the thought leaders, innovators and decision makers who will chart our nations future course for aviation and space. And as the DDRE or Chief Technology Officer of the Department of Defense, I welcome the opportunity to talk with you today. This is especially the case because our ability to operate in the atmosphere and in space in pursuit of a wide range of missions is extremely important to the Department in general, and more specifically within Defense Research and Engineering. This should come as no surprise to many of you As the size of our military has decreased and the need for us to gain access anywhere on the globe in short order has increased, our desire to develop and transition technologies in aeronautics and astronautics has intensified. I would like to begin with two impressive ST concepts that also are examples of innovation and complex system engineering central to the objectives of DDRE ... rapid support to the warfighter through the deployment of innovative capabilities and streamlining the underlying processes.
