Chapter VII. Technology Transfer
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)

G. Summary

Establishing good Army interfaces with the outside--through partnerships, cost-sharing arrangements, and reliance on other organizations--is vital for enhancing the Army science and technology program and for strengthening and improving the Army's warfighting capabilities. Outreach programs also help lay the groundwork for the Army's future by cultivating important sources of new staff. These efforts forge relations outside the Army that contribute to fulfilling its military mission and to strengthening our civilian economy.
