USA Militarily Critical Technologies Program. Content Characteristic and Analysis Over the last two years interest in learning world practice with regard to choosing the key scientific-and-technological research trends and their forecast has essentially grown. Traditionally one of the advanced countries that have accumulated considerable experience in this area are USA. Some American approaches to develop key technologies list, particularly the National Critical Technologies (NCT) program spread to Russia. Tacking into account a substantial difference in American and Russians approaches it appears viable to briefly examine NCT program content and in more detail its successor the Militarily Critical Technologies program
