    • Abstract:
      The National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) Committee on Technology, Subcommittee on Transportation Research and Development (R&D), has created a National Transportation Technology Plan that builds on the initial Technology Plan released in 1998 to present updated implementation strategies for the technology partnerships identified in the 1999 NSTC National Transportation Science and Technology Strategy. This national Strategy broadened the Transportation Science and Technology Strategy, published in 1997, to incorporate an even greater role for State, local, and tribal agencies; academic institutions; industry; and the larger transportation enterprise. Like its predecessor, the national Strategy provided a direction and framework for transportation R&D rather than a description of all research or a strategic plan. It encompassed the earlier strategy's four-tiered approach: Strategic Planning and Assessment, Private-Public Technology Partnerships, Enabling Research, and Education and Training. This document, the National Transportation Technology Plan, identifies the critical elements of the technology partnerships planned for the 2000 - 2010 time frame. It includes new partnerships on maritime safety and space transportation, broadens the scope of some partnerships, and clarifies the links between the partnerships and specific Federal programs. Although this document focuses on technology, in many cases non-technological approaches may be equally beneficial to implement. The partnerships fall into two broad categories: (1) those representing existing, well-established Federal R&D activities, and (2) new efforts requiring further definition and interagency coordination. Both categories require broadened collaboration among government, industry, and academia to achieve the improvements in transportation needed in America and globally in the next century.
