· Including relative prioritization of the working group areas


Working Group Objectives
· Assess and prioritize needs in the area
· Assess and prioritize candidate DoD S&T initiatives in the area. Try to characterize each candidate initiative as follows:

· Missing S&T
· Good Ideas
· DoD Outcome Without Missing S&T
· DoD Outcome With Missing S&T

· Identify candidate DoD S&T Grand Challenge Problems to serve as motivators and testbeds
· Identify near-term (1-3 years to payoff), mid-term (3-5 years to payoff), and long-term (over 5 years to payoff) S&T strategies for best meeting the prioritized needs in the area
