The US government has long been a supporter of new technology from ARPANET to Web browsers. The US Department of Defense has spent billions of dollars in research and development of technologies to help the military carry out it's mission of protecting the American people.

John Scott discusses how the US Government (Air Force, Navy, Army, NASA, DARPA, etc.) funds emerging technology, and reveals his personal experiences at Cincro Communications Corp. detailing who to talk to and where to go on the Internet for alternative funding sources.

John Scott is joined by Joe Addiego, In-Q-Tel portfolio manager, who discusses In-Q-Tel's investment focus, as well as how the strategic goal of improving CIA information infrastructure affects In-Q-Tel's investment decisions. In-Q-Tel, Inc. is a private, venture capital firm chartered by the CIA. In-Q-Tel strives to extend the Agency's access to new IT companies, solutions, and approaches to address their priority problems. In-Q-Tel invests in technologies that addresses critical CIA needs, and that can also become commercially viable.
