As the leader of the DoDs scientific and technical information STINFO program, DTIC has the responsibility to develop, coordinate and enable a strong STINFO program for the Assistant Secretary of Defense, Research and Engineering ASDRE and the DoD Scientific Technical ST enterprise. Our aim is to maximize the availability and use of technical information and products resulting from defense-funded technical activities while ensuring restrictions in national security, export control and intellectual property rights are safeguarded. It is DoD policy to establish and maintain a coordinated and comprehensive program to document the results and outcomes of DoD-sponsored and performed research and engineering RE studies and to provide access to those efforts in an effective manner. In the 21st Century, supporting the ST and RDTE communities will require that we integrate, more than ever, our collections with databases, information links and the latest information technology, no matter the source. Our customers, from individual researchers to acquisition professionals, will be able to quickly fuse information into the most complete picture needed in a matter of minutes to hours not days to months. W. Brian Arthur wrote Technology springs from three sources 1 technology that already exists and can be recombined in new ways to create new technologies, 2 technologies that spring from basic research breakthroughs, and 3 technology that is required to support the new technologies emerging from the previous two methods. DTICs rich collections contain the technologies that are known DTIC is the information repository from which new technologies arise.
