This is the March 11, 2020 hearing on "National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 and Oversight of Previously Authorized Programs," held before the U.S. House Committee on Armed Services. From the Opening Statement of James R. Langevin: "At a time when our national defense planning has shifted focus to great power competition, addressing the challenge from rising science powers requires an ambitious plan of national investment and aggressive talent development in science and technology. Funding for basic research, applied research, and advanced technology development in our universities, laboratories, small businesses, and the tech sector seeds the necessary science to grow the advanced technological capabilities required for our next-generation military engagements. Yet, with bipartisan support for a drastic increase in investment in our national security innovation base in this era of strategic competition, somehow growth in the science and technology budget is almost always sacrificed to field the mature technologies of today." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: James F. Geurts, Michael D. Griffin, Bruce D. Jette, and William B. Roper, Jr.
