Science and Engineering Technology Division 

Science & Engineering Technology Division

Mission
The Science & Engineering Technology Division was formed to examine the various aspects of science and technology affecting national defense.  In pursuing this mission, the division provides a forum for discussion of the nation’s defense needs by examining existing capabilities and suggesting appropriate measures to overcome deficiencies in defense research and development.  An important part of the activity is the opportunity for individuals from industry, government and academia to examine vital information in an open forum on technical needs and planned efforts.  The division is dedicated to fostering an increased interest in meeting the Department of Defense (DoD) technology requirements by creative research and advanced development throughout industry, government and academia.

Specific objectives of the division include:

  • Promote collaboration among the government, academia and defense industry team
  • Advise the defense research and advanced technology community about DoD’s plans, goals and problems
  • Review vital aspects of challenges to defense technology
  • Excite advanced technology professionals to generate new ideas for use in prospective research and technology programs
  • Encourage R&D modernization programs
  • Review major policy issues affecting defense R&D procurement and performance
  • Encourage technology transfer between government, industry and academia
  • Stimulate innovation and entrepreneurship in solving defense problems
  • Stimulate the improvement of technical and research facilities to include laboratory design and applications
  • Engage participants in an on-going process to improve the effectiveness of the DoD Science and Technology program

The division employs various methods to accomplish its objectives, to include:

  • Sponsorship of an annual national conference that emphasizes interaction among DoD, industry and academia;
  • Initiation of specialized topical symposia on identified critical technical issues;
  • Development of workshops attended by experts from government, industry and academia to generate options for action on issues critical to the defense community;
  • Presentation of follow-on reports and briefings to  government, industry and academic officials;
  • Participation in local activities in support of division goals, e.g., contact lecturing at local schools, gifts of supplies and related equipment;
  • Sponsorship and support of appropriate academic, government and industrial programs designed to motivate American students at every educational level to the study of science and engineering.
