Transforming Defense Basic Research Strategy
One of the Army's main efforts has been to attract the best and brightest to work at solving the Army's problems through the establishment of University Affiliated Research Centers and Collaborative Technology Alliances. There are currently four DOD-approved centers and five Collaborative Technology Alliances that are partnerships between academia, government, and industry. These University Affiliated Research Centers hope to combine the ability of universities to produce cutting-edge research, the expertise of industry to manufacture technology, and the knowledge of government scientists to guide the research efforts in a manner that meets the needs of the warfighter. The four centers encompass the areas of nano-technology, advanced simulations, biotechnology, and electrodynamics; while the Collaborative Technology Alliances encompass the areas of advanced sensors, power and energy, advanced decision architectures, communications and networks, and robotics.
