This thesis examines the importance of the Navy's Science and Technology (S&T) budget. The relevance and value of the budget are addressed. The composition and size of the Navy's S&T budget between 1984 and 1994 are evaluated as a share of the Department of Defense (DoD) and Navy Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation (RDT&E) budgets. The Navy S&T budget is examined from the presidential request through appropriations over a ten year period. There is an analysis of Naval Technology Transfer Programs and an examination of Advanced Technology Demonstrations (ATDs) and Enhanced Technology Demonstrations (ETDs). Five major conclusions are drawn. First, the period between 1984 and 1987 generally saw DoD RDT&E, Navy RDT&E, and Navy S&T generally increase. Second, for the period 1988 and 1994, DoD and Navy RDT&E funding generally decreased while Navy S&T generally increased. Third, for the 1989 through 1993 period there was significantly more conflict between Congress and the executive branch over Navy S&T funding levels. Fourth, technology transfer programs represent an increasing constraint on S&T procurement
