Huh??????? can you do little research before you post this? Are you in any university

George Washington University.
I was in the engineering program and I remember that General Motors had a bit of a partnership going on with the school's engineering program, supplying them with a truck to tinker around with in their project called "Future Truck." The corporation gave the truck for free and also sponsored for parts and stuff I believe.

China at the minute does not have the military technology that china has. This means that there a step behind, they have to develop there own equipment to be up to american standards. But at the same time the americans are going to be developing there own technology. Boeing, Lockheed arent going to sit on there arses, they wont big military contacts so they are going to develop better technology. I cant see china catching up with the US in the next 5-10 years, unless there is a bit of industrial espionage , or suddenly the US becomes friendly with china, but that still doesnt mean they will share there technology.

I belive that program cannot represent anything. I agree private companies grant lots money, but the biggest resources are from federal government, especially defense department and healthcare department
this is the statistic report

NOT

Will US still BE better than Russia and China?

Well I answered your question. In 10 years time, I think they'd still be a generation ahead of everyone else.

Well considering the fact tht the russian economy is not very large i cant see them being able to turn out equipment that makes big steps forward in technology like the US can (see F117), the rest of the world still havent developed an aircraft that matches the stealth of the F117, B2 and there 10yrs old. That is quite an advantage while the chinese are buying in russian aircraft or reverse engineering them and there not new aircraft and there not any evidence of china developing any new aircraft like the JSF. So in terms of aircraft the US holds a considerable advantage over ever country in the world and i cant see them relinquishing it in quite a long time.
In terms of the navy the US has a large advantage and that is probably not going to go. The US is developing submarines such as Nssn virginia class while china is developing submarines using russian/chinese technology that is far behind.
The army though is a different matter as the equipment that china/Us has is not that technologicall different but as the_13th_redneck wrote in terms of EW and command/control the US is on a different playing field to everybody else and that wont change.

"the rest of the world still haven't developed an aircraft that matches the stealth of the F117, B2 and there 10yrs old" They are more like 20 years old. I honestly think nobody will catch up for at least 20 years. We are not going to sit around and let anybody catch up. I also dont think that lasers mean jack shit. By the time China goes to war their will be goggles or something that make them useless. I honestly think the idea is incredibly stupid, while they are trying to blind people American soldiers are trying to kill people. It makes me question Chinas honor and courage. Are they afraid to fight their enemy face to face?
