Department of Defense Technology Vision for an Era of Competition

The memo lists three groups of fourteen technology areas that are critical to the department.

The Department of Defense announced today a new technology vision established by Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering Heidi Shyu. This technology vision, anchored by the USD(R&E)’s three strategic pillars of mission focus, foundation building and succeeding through teamwork, will be used to develop a National Defense Science and Technology strategy based on an updated National Defense Strategy.

“To maintain the United States military’s technological advantage, the Department will champion research, science, technology, engineering, and innovation,” said Shyu. “The demands of the present era call for new operational concepts, increasingly joint operations, and quickly fielding emerging science and technology opportunities.”

In addition to building a strong ecosystem to deliver future technologies to the military, the memo lists three groups of fourteen technology areas that are critical to the department. The Memorandum with the full list of Critical Technology Areas can be found on www.cto.mil.
