The Big Data Interagency Working Group (BD IWG) works to facilitate and further the goals of the White House Big Data R&D Initiative.
The CPS IWG is to coordinate programs, budgets, and policy recommendations for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) research and development (R&D).
Cyber Security and Information Assurance (CSIA) Interagency Working Group coordinates the activities of the CSIA Program Component Area.
The Health Information Technology Research and Development Interagency Working Group coordinates programs, budgets and policy recommendations for Health IT R&D.
HCI&IM focuses on information interaction, integration, and management research to develop and measure the performance of new technologies.
HCSS R&D supports development of scientific foundations and enabling software and hardware technologies for the engineering, verification and validation, assurance, and certification of complex, networked, distributed computing systems and cyber-physical systems (CPS).
The HEC IWG coordinates the activities of the High End Computing (HEC) Infrastructure and Applications (I&A) and HEC Research and Development (R&D) Program Component Areas (PCAs).
LSN members coordinate Federal agency networking R&D in leading-edge networking technologies, services, and enhanced performance.
The purpose of the SPSQ IWG is to coordinate the R&D efforts across agencies that transform the frontiers of software science and engineering and to identify R&D areas in need of development that span the science and the technology of software creation and sustainment.
Formed to ensure and maximize successful coordination and collaboration across the Federal government in the important and growing area of video and image analytics
The Wireless Spectrum R&D (WSRD) Interagency Working Group (IWG) has been formed to coordinate spectrum-related research and development activities across the Federal government.
NITRD -> NITRD Groups -> Large Scale Networking -> BRD Group
Broadband provides high-speed access to the Internet, which has become an essential service for full inclusion in society. The Broadband Research and Development (BRD) Group was therefore formed to help the Nation tackle the research challenges and opportunities in improving broadband access and adoption. The BRD Group will coordinate Federal agency broadband research and development, as initially described in the 2017 "The National Broadband Research Agenda: Key Priorities For Broadband Research And Data", (NBRA). The NBRA identified (a) promising research areas; (b) requirements for data collection and sharing; (c) opportunities for better alignment and coordination across Federal and external stakeholders; and (d) potential Federal actions (e.g., funding strategies, policy development, and programs) to enhance data collection and research.
The BRD Group was created in April 2017 by the Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Subcommittee. The BRD Group reports to the Large Scale Networking (LSN) Interagency Working Group (IWG).
