据c4isr网12月24日报道

美国会提出,国防创新单元(DIU)2021财年研究发展经费预算比总统提出的预算增加2000多万美元。

为DIU共拨款6690万美元研究发展试验与鉴定(RDT&E)预算,以促进非传统承包商商业技术军用开发利用,这比DIU申请增加2750万美元。

DIU两个太空计划项目预算增加950万美元,一是多轨道平台项目,获得450万美元预算,“用于在轨服务、装配和后勤保障的太空运输和机器人平台”商业样机计划。

DIU小型战术成像卫星商业样机计划获得500万美元,用于为作战人员评估战术地理空间情报能力。

样机研发经费大幅增加。对“两用技术”样机经费预算增拨1500万美元,大幅增加了DIU经费预算,旨在从商业市场开发军用产品。

还为Gig Eagle人才管理试点计划增拨300万美元样机预算。


Space programs boost Defense Innovation Unit budget

WASHINGTON — Congress boosted the research and development budget of the Defense Innovation Unit by more than $20 million in its fiscal 2021 spending package sitting on the president’s desk.

Lawmakers allocated $66.9 million in research, development, test and evaluation funds for DIU, a Pentagon office that fields commercial technology from nontraditional contractors to department components. That amount is nearly $27.5 million more than DIU’s request, and a huge increase over its 2020 $46.6 million RDT&E budget.

Two space programs increased the DIU budget by $9.5 million, according to budget documents. The first increase was for DIU’s multi-orbit platform, which received a $4.5 million boost. The commercial prototype project looks at “in-space transportation and robotic platforms for on-orbit servicing, assembly and logistics,” said Mike Madsen, director of DIU strategic engagement, in a statement.

DIU also got a $5 million boost for its small tactical imagery satellites program, a commercial prototype project that’s assessing tactical geospatial intelligence capabilities for the war fighter, Madsen said.

The DIU budget increase was largely driven by a $15 million increase in prototype funds over the budget request for “dual-use technologies,” products adapted from the commercial market to solve military problems.

The office also received a $3 million increase in prototype funds for a talent management pilot program, called Gig Eagle.

“Gig Eagle is a new talent optimization app that will leverage commercial AI/ML technology to identify and engage the right talent in real-time,” Madsen said. “The initial rollout will unlock Reserve component talent for joint mission sets. We are currently working with a number of the services as potential partners.”
