Carter Pushes to Renew Collaboration Between Military, Industry, Academia

“Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter, an admirable mix of theoretical physicist and medieval historian, is trying to reconstruct the collaboration between the academic world, industry and government that existed in World War II and the Cold War but appears to have died out in recent years,” according to The Washington Post .  

“The globalization of military technology, the growth of cyber and electronic warfare, and the rise of non-state actors make renewing collaboration essential, he said… Carter described a series of private-sector achievements that were rooted in defense research projects — starting with the Internet itself but also including technologies that Apple integrated into the iPhone.”
