After several years of relatively constant funding, the DoD R&D set-aside increased by 15 percent in FY2001. Cautiously, DoD awarded less than 8 percent more Phase I contracts. In 2002, DoD received a further increase of 22 percent in R&D funding and it became clear that the FY2003 and FY2004 DoD R&D budgets were likely to grow even further.
