1)  identifying, analyzing, and fulfilling the needs and requirements of stakeholders for applications, policies, standards, and information;

2)  testing, evaluating, verifying, and demonstrating commercial ready applications;

3)  rapidly developing promising, high-priority applications to commercial-ready status, when needed;
