Independent Research and Development IR and D 2013 Update

The Assistant SecDef (Research & Engineering) conducted a public update to the DoD efforts to benefit from industry's activities funded by IR&D funds. The update was presented as an NDIA Workshop on 21 March 13. A summary of that workshop is included. In these increasingly austere times, OSD is attempting to leverage funding areas that haven't been utilized before. IR&D is one area. DoD has no control over IR&D funds, that is the exclusive control of each company. However, if that information can be documented in a proper controlled database, that other companies won't have access to, then the government personnel may be able to benefit from such advances in distinct companies.
