Abstract : The research technology area plan incompasses Air Force basic research. It includes all scientific and engineering disciplines contributing to the Air Force mission. The basic research outlined in this plan will enable the Air Force to perform its mission for into the 21st Century. The mission of Air Force basic research is to sponsor and sustain basic research, to transfer and transition research results, and to support Air Force goals of control and maximum utilization of air and space. Only a vigorous, focused, and diversified basic research program can provide our nation with the required depth and scope of options for new and advanced technologies to meet the air and space superiority goals of the Air Force. Furthermore, the relative decrease in planned acquisition of new weapon systems makes it imperative to build a partnership with the U.S. industrial base, logistics support and the operational Air Force. This partnership helps to keep the focus of basic research on the warfighter needs, near- and long-term, and provides a quick transition path to current and future systems produced by industry.
