Accelerating the transition of new technologies into systems and products will be crucial to the Department of Defenses development of a lighter, more flexible fighting force.

Current long transition times-ten years or more is now typical-are attributed to the complexity of the process. The Committee on Accelerating Technology Transition, which organized and conducted the workshop, was asked to examine the lessons learned from rapid technology applications by successful, integrated design/manufacturing groups and to carry out the following tasks.

The Accelerating Transition The energy economy that is now powered largely by coal and oil will be powered increasingly by solar and wind energy. During the last century the world relied heavily on coal mines and oil fields. This century is witnessing a shift to renewable energy.

Several forces are converging to advance this great transition. Accelerating sustainable energy transitions away from carbon-based fuel sources needs to be high on the agendas of developing countries. It is key in achieving their climate mitigation promises and sustainable energy development objectives.

To bring about rapid transitions, simultaneous turns are im.

As a narrow bandgap semiconductor, NiS2 is promising to be an efficient electrocatalyst towards hydrogen evolution reactions (HER) by regulating the local electronic structure.

The mechanism of transition metal doping to improve the electrocatalytic performance of NiS2 is not comprehensively reported yet.

The modern slaughters of World Wars I and II are modern demonstrations that when great powers fight symmetrically, the result is costly, even globally catastrophic. While America avoided catastrophe during the Cold War, the potential for great-power conflict and its consequences have returned.

Today, America deters its great-power rivals, Russia and China, from a strategically [ ].

This strategy will needs some coordination. Level 5 Leadership is described in the book Good to Great, written by Jim Collins, PhD, MBA.

Great leaders display a powerful mixture of personal humility and indomitable will. They're incredibly ambitious, but their ambition is first and foremost for the cause, for the organization and its purpose, not themselves.Building on that, in the ATOM e-book, I detail how accelerating technological progress has a major impact on space exploration.

Contrary to a widely-repeated belief that space exploration has plateaued since the Apollo program, technology has ensure that quite the opposite is true.Accelerating and Improving Veteran Recruitment.
