The Impact of NITRD: Two Decades of Game-Changing Breakthroughs in Networking and Information Technology - Expanding Possibilities Ahead
The CPS SSG is to coordinate programs, budgets, and policy recommendations for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) research and development (R&D).
Cyber Physical Systems Vision Statement
As a commitment to openness and transparency, NCO is making all of its NITRD budget data available to the public and viewable via an interactive dashboard. The NITRD Dashboard helps interested individuals better track funding trends and identify agencies with investments in technical areas of interest.
The NITRD Program provides a framework in which many Federal agencies come together to coordinate their networking and information technology (IT) research and development (R&D) efforts.
The Program operates under the aegis of the NITRD Subcommittee of the National Science and Technology Council's (NSTC) Committee on Technology. The Subcommittee, made up of representatives from each of NITRD's member agencies, provides overall coordination for NITRD activities.
Federal IT R&D, which launched and fueled the digital revolution, continues to drive innovation in scientific research, national security, communication, and commerce to sustain U.S. technological leadership. The NITRD agencies' collaborative efforts increase the overall effectiveness and productivity of these Federal R&D investments, leveraging strengths, avoiding duplication, and increasing interoperability of R&D products.
