This time of year (end of US Govt Fiscal Year) is a time for reports and such. As Scott points out, program managers are always under the gun to show that R&D investments that they have made are “transitioning to operational use” or that the investment was sufficiently worthy. We leave a discussion of the inherently risky nature of R&D investments to others.

To DOE's credit, they are not picking and choosing. They are funding R&D such as Fast Forward and Design Forward as well as software development. They _do_ want to see the investments pay off and be used.
