New NAS Report on Basic Research at DOD

DOD basic research has become less basic and has declined in both absolute dollars and as a percentage of the overall DOD science and technology budget.

The Computing Research Policy Blog gives an overview and summary of the report's recommendations that is well worth reading.

"The National Academies have released their long-awaited report, Assessment of Department of Defense Basic Research. This is the study that was requested by the Senate Armed Services Committee in the FY 2004 Defense Authorization Act after they raised questions about the state of DOD basic research ('6.1' research in defense parlance) as part of the hearings leading up to the bill."
