Abstract:

The purpose of this report is to provide an overview of the principal findings and recommendations of the Commission on Integrated Long-Term Strategys Working Group on Technology. Specifically, subsequent pages outline the Groups views on what is required if the U.S. is to have the technology necessary to implement the Commissions recommendations on how best to ensure U.S. national security into the 21st century. Just as important, however, the authors believe that many of the recommendations set forth in this report must be implemented even if the integrated strategy outlined in Discriminate Deterrence is not fully carried out. Whatever the specific outlines of the U.S. deterrent posture in the future, its credibility to our adversaries and allies alike will depend significantly upon a concerted U.S. effort now to revitalize the defense science and technology base.
