STEM Policy Contributions

National Science & Technology Council (NSTC) Committee on Technology, National R&D Plan for Aviation Safety, Security, Efficiency & Environmental Compatibility
Led the interagency team primarily responsible for the development, preparation and coordination of the National Science and Technology Council’s (NSTC) National R&D Plan for Aviation Safety, Security, Efficiency & Environmental Compatibility – the FAA, NASA & DOD joint-plan to implement then $1.3B FY01 R&D investment recommendations of former President Clinton’s 1997 Commission on Aviation Safety & Security, chaired by former Vice President Albert Gore. Former U.S. Transportation Secretary Rodney E. Slater at the “Aviation in the 21st Century – Beyond Open Skies Ministerial” in Chicago, Illinois launched this plan on December 5-7, 1999.

NSTC Committee on Technology, Wire Systems Safety Interagency Working Group
Served as co-chair of the NSTC Committee on Technology Wire Systems Safety Interagency Working Group, which resulted in the White House policy document, Review of Federal Programs for Wire Systems Safety, aimed to benchmark agency efforts to optimize Federal R&D leading to a national strategy for wire system safety in response to the Gore Commission on Aviation Safety & Security.

  1. Oliver, I met you when I was NTA president and you were leading the band at OSU. I have published STEM News for several years to educators and professional and I would like to include in a future issue a short (couple paragraphs) on what you feel are major challenges to getting more Black youth into STEM career paths.

    let me have an e-mail address so I can send the newsletter

    Larry King,
