Report finds blind spots in DoD's view of global science and technology

A new study by the National Academy of Sciences suggests that the U.S. can't take its current technological superiority for granted. By 2050, the U.S. will only account for 18 percent of global R&D spending. Its share has already fallen to less than a third of what the world collectively spends. Dr. Arden Bement co-chaired the research project and spoke to Federal News Radio's DoD Reporter Jared Serbu. Read Jason's related story.

But officials said they hope a recent overhaul in the procedures will breathe new life into the program.

The Obama Administration has waited until now to submit its overseas contingency operations budget to Congress. That's because the President had yet to determine how many troops would stay in Afghanistan. Now, the request for fiscal 2015 is $58.6 billion. Federal News Radio's DoD Reporter Jared Serbu told Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive that the Pentagon's request is well below what many observers had expected. Read Jared's related article.
