Approved For Release 2000/i$ib E D~89R002600120004-7 DT-S CHARTER (S/NF) OBJECTIVES: The primary objectives of DT-S are to conduct the following activities in response to the FY 91 Congressional direction: a. Identify and obtain basic and applied external research (near term). b. Develop a long range comprehensive research plan. c. Develop appropriate assessment/evaluation procedures and project documentation. 3. (S/NF) In-house investigations: a. Support research projects; pursue select potential applications on a systematic bases. b. Obtain appropriate support/equipment; develop appropriate procedures/documentation. (S/NF) PRIORITIES: In view of timing and other constraints, DT-S should emphasize objectives No.. 1 and No. 2 above. Objective No. 3 should be pursued to the extent possible while maintaining a systematic approach and from the point-of-view of contribution to applied research understanding, but not to the detriment of ,fulfilling objectives No. 1 and No. 2.

SG1B There are three main aspects to the STAR GATE project: (1 research via $2 million 2-year R/D funding that was allocated in FY92; and (3) pursuit of in-house investigations in applying this phenomena to high-interest intelligence collection and operational problems. These three mission areas were part of the FY91 and FY92 Congressional direction for DIA. (S/NF) Loss of the 10 billets for this project would result in cancellation of all three of these mission areas. Thus, the Intelligence Community would not be able to monitor and assess foreign activities in this field, nor would a capability exist for applying a unique intelligence collection tool that has potential in application areas where other collection techniques have little or no effectiveness (e.g., hostage location). Loss of these billets would mean abandonment of all basic and applied research that is currently showing promise for phenomena explanation and for improving application utility. In addition, a talent pool established over the past several years would be dispersed and lost for further development.
