3 Connecting Researchers to the Warfighter
President Obama, State of the Union, 25 Jan 2011 “The first step in winning the future is encouraging American innovation. Our free enterprise system is what drives innovation. But because it’s not always profitable for companies to invest in basic research, throughout our history, our government has provided cutting-edge scientists and inventors with the support they need. Two years ago, I said that we needed to reach a level of research and development , we haven’t seen since the Space Race. And in a few weeks I’ll be sending a budget to Congress that helps us meet that goal. We’ll invest in biomedical research, information technology, and especially clean energy technology -- an investment that will strengthen our security, protect our planet, and create countless new jobs for our people. Maintaining our leadership in research and technology is crucial to America’s success. But if we want to win the future - - if we want innovation to produce jobs in America and not overseas – then we also have to win the race to educate our kids. Over the next 10 years, with so many baby boomers retiring from our classrooms, we want to prepare 100,000 new teachers in the fields of science and technology and engineering and math.” Investment in Basic and Applied Research is a commitment to the future warfighter 3

26 DoD S&T Budget Authority
DoD divides its RDT&E funding into seven different types of budget authority. The first three are collectively termed science and technology (S&T) budget authority. BA1 basic research, which is systematic study directed toward greater knowledge or understanding of the fundamental aspects of phenomena and of observable facts but without specific applications to processes or products in mind. BA2 applied research—systematic study to understand the means to meet a recognized and specific need. BA3 advanced technology development, which includes development of subsystems and components and efforts to integrate subsystems and components into system prototypes for field experiments or tests in a simulated environment. BA4 advanced component development and prototypes, including efforts that evaluate integrated technologies, representative modes, or prototype systems in a high-fidelity and realistic operating environment. BA5 system development and demonstration programs. Such programs conduct engineering and manufacturing development tasks aimed at meeting validated requirements prior to full-scale production. BA6 RDT&E management support. BA7 development of operational systems, which covers development efforts to upgrade systems that have been fielded or have received approval for full-scale production. 26
