Abstract:

Good afternoon Madam Chairwoman, Ranking Member Miller. I am pleased to be here today on behalf of the dedicated men and women working in the Department of Defense, Research and Engineering DDRE enterprise who discover, develop, engineer, and field the critical technologies for our Service Members, and civilians deployed in the defense of our Nation. I would like to thank the members of Congress for your continued support of the Departments science and technology ST program and our broader research and engineering RE program. Your steadfast support has allowed the Department to field technologically-based military capabilities that are unmatched anywhere in the world and provide the capability edge upon which our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines rely. I am also honored to be joined today by leaders of the Departments ST organizations who will provide testimony in support of their individual ST efforts Dr. Tom Killion from the Army, Rear Admiral Nevin Carr from the Navy, Dr. Steve Walker from the Air Force, and Dr. Regina Dugan from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA. Their leadership of the DoD ST community is critical to the success of our forces to meet todays challenges and to prepare for the future. I am here today to describe the FY 2011 Presidents Budget Request PBR-11 for science and technology, to show how prior investments have maintained our technological edge and to show how the FY 2011 investment will continue to provide critical capabilities for our Nations security.
