The next presidential term will confront an increasingly urgent question of how to compete with China, economically and militarily. Simply increasing national security funding or R&D spending will not ensure victory against a competitor able to outspend the United States. Instead, we will need once again to revolutionize public-private partnerships to meet the challenge, harnessing more efficient ways of developing and implementing new technology. This paper proposes a novel approach for such partnerships, leveraging a joint venture model to share proprietary federal data with industry—on a limited basis, with appropriate safeguards—to catalyze faster development of new national security technology applications.
