The Arroyo Center has developed a methodology to identify opportunities for the Army to use collaboration with industry to more effectively achieve its research and development goals. The framework prioritizes technologies by Army utility and by market breadth, and it allows superimposition of different management approaches. The author applies the framework to Army technologies and identifies those that are the most appropriate candidates for collaborative development with the commercial sector. Also presented is a budgetary analysis of recent and proposed Army R&D resource allocations. By integrating the budgetary analysis with the framework application, the author shows that more Army collaboration with industry in selected technologies will enhance the effective use of Army R&D funds.
