Appendix D
Opening Session Charts

Prior to the symposium, the DIA/DWO distributed questionnaires to selected governmental participants to elicit their perspectives regarding key topics to be discussed during the symposium. Responses were received from the major stakeholder communities—including COCOMs, defense acquisition, defense R&D, and S&TI producers. The results were tabulated and shown graphically during the opening session to help set the scene for the subsequent panel discussions. While the sample was small and the results not statistically significant, the distribution of responses served to focus and stimulate panel discussions. Figures D-1 through D-8 in the section “Setting the Scene” in Chapter 1 were shared with symposium participants.
