DoD’s proposed CET&I budget represents a 12.3-percent increase from the amount requested for FY 2018 and excludes military activities that cover “substantial” electronics systems.

The department seeks to invest $9.83 billion in CET&I and the remaining $3.1 billion for research, development, test and evaluation efforts, the report noted.
