Solving the National DNA Analysis Backlog Crisis

DNA analysis is a vital tool to the criminal justice system. The importance of having the capacity to process and analyze vast quantities of samples is paramount as all 50 states have laws requiring DNA samples to be collected from certain categories of offenders.

Securing Production of America’s Information and Computer Technology

AUI White Paper on the need for a public-private partnership dedicated to microelectronics supply chain assurance and R&D.

Establish a Clean Mining Technology Institute

Establish a national-scale effort that focuses on developing and demonstrating technologies for eliminating emissions from mining and processing of minerals.

Establish a Cybersecurity Maturity Model Standard for Election Security

Establish an institute run by an independent, non-profit to formulate a cybersecurity maturity model well-suited to protect the cybersecurity of the Nation’s election infrastructure.

Establish a Manufacturing Science Laboratory

The formation of a stand-alone Manufacturing Science Laboratory will provide a transformational capability to the U.S. research enterprise to dramatically shorten the time from scientific discovery to consumer-ready technology.

Foster a Remote Cybersecurity Workforce through Military Families

Support the creation and management of a service center that can employ a cybersecurity workforce to support organizations from anywhere in the country.

Establish a Government-Wide Trusted Microelectronics Research, Test and Evaluation Laboratory

Establish a new entity focused exclusively on securing the ICT supply chain from design through operations, ensuring management control to drive culture change, re-writing the code of conduct governing ICT design, and providing the needed focus on security and resiliency as major qualities for integrated circuits for national security needs.

Establish a Grid Resilience Technology Test Network

Establish a national scale test facility that can help drive the Nation toward a more robust and resilient backbone for our clean energy future.

Establish a National Critical Infrastructure Resilience Center with Regional Hubs

Create a National CI Resilience Laboratory that manages a network of regionally distributed CI Resilience Centers of Learning and Excellence (CIRCLE) in strategic locations around the nation to monitor local CI, plan regional training exercises, participate in national/regional modeling and simulation events, and coordinate ongoing education and workforce development programs.

Establish a National Radio Dynamic Zone and Spectrum Innovation Center

Establish one or more National Radio Dynamic Zones (NRDZs), or large test beds, to allow industry and researchers to test and demonstrate new technologies and techniques aimed at more efficient use of the spectrum.

Establish Regional Cybersecurity Centers of Excellence

Create a network of regionally distributed cybersecurity centers of excellence in strategic locations around the Nation to catalyze efforts to address local issues and participate in national initiatives.

Support Online Cybersecurity Education for Reskilling and Training

Support the formation and management of a consortium of institutions that provide vocational, bachelor’s, and master’s-level cybersecurity training, including online elements.

Restoring U.S. Primacy in Microelectronics by Establishing a Dedicated Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC)

Strengthening America’s capacity to produce trusted information and communications technologies (ICT) through innovation and industry partnerships is paramount if the U.S. is to confront national and economic security grand challenges.
