Abstract
The Office of Innovative Science and Technology is involved with the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization. This office, the Innovative Science and Technology office, is different from most research outfits within the Department of Defense, and quite frankly within the government. What we do is attempt, and I think we do more than attempt, we actually do it, we integrate the basic science engineering into a product. We don't separate out basic research, engineering research, product development, fabrication. we do it all together. We have an end goal in mind and we bring whatever basic engineering sciences that have to be brought to bear on that particular mission to come up with that product. Now the product that we come up with obviously fits the Department of Defense mission, and specifically the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization missions. Even so, those products have cut across many lines of application ranging from medical applications, all forms of commercial applications, you name it and it is there. If you look hard enough, and that is the problem ... knowing where to look.
