New Report: Review of the Intelligence Community's R&D Programs

The National Commission for the Review of the Research and Development Programs of the United States Intelligence Community has released their findings in an unclassified version of the report. The Commission was established by Public Law 11-259 in October 2010, and was charged with determining how well the Intelligence Community (IC) coordinates with other Research and Development (R&D) programs and assets in the United States, especially with regard to implementation of technological capabilities and advances.

Overall, the Commission found the U.S. Intelligence Community to be lacking in their strategic planning, awareness, and general effort to incorporate the broader U.S. R&D base into their own network. Greg Miller from the Washington Post also covered the report in a recent editorial, which you can find here.
