8 Distribution Statement A: Approved for Public Release; Distribution is unlimited. 8 S&T Portfolio The priorities outlined in this Plan are the result of a process that is largely driven by S&T objectives, technology needs and customers requirements. A balanced portfolio creates an environment that manages technical risk, cost, impact and time frame to delivery. S&T initiatives are executed across a broad array of technical maturity and transition levels that are strategically aligned to the S&T objectives. The portfolio is balanced across long-term research, high risk game changers, quick reactions and our niche of technology transition. Broad Narrow Focus Near ( 15 Years) Quick Reaction S&T (6.3 – up) =20% Quick Reaction S&T (6.3 – up) =20% Off-the-Shelf technologies… 1-2 years Technology Transition (6.3 – 6.4) =50% Technology Transition (6.3 – 6.4) =50% Component technologies… 3-5 years Leap Ahead Innovations (Game Changers/High Risk) =20% Leap Ahead Innovations (Game Changers/High Risk) =20% Discovery & Invention (6.1 – 6.2) =10% Discovery & Invention (6.1 – 6.2) =10% Disruptive technologies… 5-10 years Undiscovered & Emerging technologies… 10-20 years

9 Distribution Statement A: Approved for Public Release; Distribution is unlimited. 9 S&T External Relationships This plan draws upon the research and development capacity from across other government agencies, the public enterprise, international entities, private sector, and academia to locate and leverage the best S&T possible. This includes fostering/maintaining relationships with other government agencies, interagency coordination as well as the external enterprise. Goals of leveraging the external network for advancing science & technology in the 3 mission areas are to: Use existing and recognized expertise, resources, and facilities Access to existing and new innovation (open innovation) Bring diversity of thought from non-DoD scientists and engineers Leverage non-traditional funding sources to pursue relevant S&T/R&D Transfer knowledge

13 Distribution Statement A: Approved for Public Release; Distribution is unlimited. 13 Trusted Electronics S&T Objectives Modern weapon systems are extremely sophisticated, relying on state-of-the-art electronics to achieve performance that was only dreamed of just a few years ago. A very high percentage of the microelectronics utilized in these weapon systems are Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS). This reliance on microelectronics has raised concern within the Department of Defense (DoD) in several different areas, including “trust”. Rather than continuing to rely on the "trusted" approach of accrediting U.S. facilities for production of electronics it is essential that the DoD focuses on developing innovative technologies that inherently enable the identification of trusted design, development, and manufacturing sources at the component level. 0-5 Years and Beyond Protection against counterfeiting ability Screening methods for counterfeits Microelectronics research for mods that degrade performance, reliability and functionality Development of innovative methods to evaluate Trust Develop Suspect counterfeit parts evaluation methods and procedures for proper handling Provide/assure custody and control of both classified and unclassified electronic components throughout ALL life cycle phases Ensuring that no reasonable threats related to disruption of supply exists Materials Science Radiation Science Modeling and Simulation MEMS Technology Nanotechnology Verification & Validation Biological Science Failure Analysis Tools/Technology Analog, Digital & Mixed-Signal Technology Printed Circuit Board Technology High-Speed Communication Technology Physics (quantum electronics) Semiconductor Physics 5-10 Years B/A Research Needed
