Department of Defense

Consolidate DoD Research Laboratories

The Army, Navy, and Air Force each have their own research laboratory. These three research laboratories share many of the same objectives, such as:

 

Directed Energy

Information Technology

Propulsion

Munitions

Human Research

Sensors

Space Vehicles

Materials

 

By bringing these three labs under one DoD Research Laboratory, redundancy in research objectives could be eliminated. Furthermore, many of the directorates and programs in these three organizations are under funded. By bringing them together, funds could be consolidated, thus having a larger impact on technological advancement. Due to increased effectiveness of spending, funding could actually be decreased.
