The 2010 National Aeronautics Research and Development Plan RD Plan represented the Federal consensus regarding national aeronautics RD challenges, goals, and supporting objectives. Key to the success of the RD Plan is a need for improved interagency collaboration to best manage and use the Nations aeronautics research, development, test, and evaluation RDTE infrastructure. Recognizing this, the National Aeronautics Research and Development Policy that guides Federal aeronautics research and development RD through 2020, directs relevant Federal departments and agencies to develop a plan for managing the infrastructure necessary to achieve the goals and objectives in the RD plan. The Infrastructure Plan is part of the Administrations sustained emphasis on interagency planning to define and achieve high-priority national aeronautics RD goals and objectives. It highlights areas in which stronger interagency coordination will enable improved productivity form important national investments in aeronautics RDTE infrastructure. Innovative interagency management processes and policies will assist the Federal departments and agencies in achieving the goals and objectives in the RD Plan, thus contributing to the economic growth and security of the Nation, while assuring its continued technological leadership in aeronautics.
