 Science and Technology

The Science and Technology Division explores the concepts and advanced technologies shaping the future of distribution operations. The division serves as a focal point for SDDC and USTRANSCOM’s Science and Technology Programs, which includes the Advanced Concept/Joint Capability Technology Demonstrations (A/JCTDs) and the evaluation of applicable commercial concepts. The division cultivates relationships within the Research and Development (R&D) community, industry, and academia. The division recommends, coordinates, and evaluates appropriate change management proposals and actions.
