• NITRD Coordination Areas

    The Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Program's member agencies coordinate their NITRD research activities and plans by Program Component Areas (PCAs) or program focus areas. For each PCA, agency representatives meet in an Interagency Working Group (IWG) to exchange information and collaborate on research plans and activities such as testbeds, workshops, and cooperative solicitations.

Overview

The IRAS IWG coordinates NITRD agency research and development (R&D) programs, budgets, and policy recommendations, focusing on the advancement of intelligent robotics and autonomous systems that complement, augment, enhance, or emulate human physical capabilities or embodied human intelligence. This includes identifying and pursuing current and emerging topics of mutual interest to the member agencies; launching of taskforces to examine specific timely research topics and opportunities; coordinating major interagency outreach activities; and facilitating the development and sharing of data, models, software tools, and testbeds among NITRD agencies and stakeholders.
