The NDO SCF science and technology (S&T) taxonomy includes the following areas of significant interest:
- Nuclear Command, Control, and Communications (NC3)
- Strategic Deterrence – Ground (SDG)
- Strategic Deterrence – Air (SDA)
- Cross-Cutting Technologies
This NDO IR&D engagement has broad goals to increase two-way awareness, stimulate collaboration, and seek alignment between Industry’s IR&D innovation projects and DoD high priority technology needs and activity areas. The invitation is open to all Industry IR&D participants, including large and small businesses and academia.
The discussions will be in a classified setting – Collateral Secret as a minimum, with capability to ramp some dialogue into the Top Secret Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) levels, by request and as needed.
