Change is a constant in the national security sector. The U.S. government continuously updates its policies and doctrines as the nature of the threat evolves. This, in turn, drives capability requirements and research in new directions.

To prosper and make an impact, government labs must align their research and development with emerging requirements. Perhaps more importantly, invested funds must be balanced across conflicting objectives, timelines, risk horizons, and customer interests. Given the rapidly changing context, what combination of programs will provide the greatest impact given all the constraints and risks that an organization is up against?
