Summary
Technological advantage is fundamental to U.S. military dominance in 21st-century warfare. Major acquisitions in the Department of Defense Defense's (DOD) ongoing force transformation including manned and unmanned aircraft systems, networkcentric communications systems, and air and ground weapons rely on maintaining technological superiority. Failure to identify and protect critical technologies makes U.S. military assets vulnerable to cloning, neutralization, or other action that degrades current and anticipated capabilities. To help minimize these risks, DOD Dod's Militarily Critical Technologies Program developed and periodically updates two lists of technologies the Militarily Critical Technologies List (MCTL) and the Developing Science and Technologies List (DSTL) each consisting of 20 sections. These lists are primarily intended to inform U.S. export control decisions, but can also help inform counterintelligence activities, research plans, and technology protection programs. As such, the MCTL and DSTL are considered fundamental to identifying technologies critical to national security that can help inform decisions to ensure U.S. technological advantage for the warfighter. Redefined national security threats, rapid technological advances, and increasing efforts by adversaries to gain access to U.S. military weapon system technology heighten the need to identify and protect militarily critical technologies. Given the importance of the MCTL and DSTL, you asked us to (1) assess the Militarily Critical Technologies Program's process for updating the MCTL and DSTL and (2) determine how the lists are used to inform export control and DOD policy decisions
