Office of National Laboratories: Harnessing a Network of Laboratories to Meet Tomorrow's Homeland Security Challenges   [open pdf - 4MB]

From the Introduction: "Whether operating in times of calm, preparedness, crisis or response, our new reality is that American scientific and technological know-how must exist on the cutting edge of innovation and produce capabilities that match current and future needs. ONL [Office of National Laboratories] embraces its centralized role with all laboratories that provide developmental assistance for products and solutions to support the homeland security community and keep our country safe. ONL is arranged into two branches that work collaboratively with the laboratories and key stakeholders to deliver vital science and technology capabilities. Our Utilization Branch facilitates the effective use of our five in-house RDT&E [Research, Development, Test & Evaluation] laboratories and their capabilities located across seven sites, the Department of Energy (DOE) National Laboratories and other auxiliary RDT&E capabilities and technology transition activities. [...] Our Operations Branch provides oversight for the five S&T [Science & Technology] laboratories and sites to make sure they remain primed and equipped to fulfill mission needs."
