User Needs and Technology Opportunities

The development of affordable systems is now a key driver of the defense acquisition process. In order to guide the development of affordable systems, AAC engineers can help the PM articulate those capability needs, using Joint concepts, integrated architectures, and analyses of doctrine, organization, training, materiel, leadership and education, personnel, and facilities (DOTMLPF) in an integrated, collaborative process.

User Needs

The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, with the assistance of the JROC, assesses and provides advice regarding military capability needs for defense acquisition programs. Program Managers and other stakeholders develop the ICD. The purpose is to examine multiple concepts to optimize the way DoD provides these capabilities. AAC engineers help PMs formulate broad, time-phased, operational goals, and describe them in the ICD.

When the ICD demonstrates the need for a materiel solution, the JROC recommends that the MDA work with appropriate stakeholders to determine whether there is sufficient information to proceed with a Materiel Development Decision. If the MDA decides that additional analysis is required, a designated office prepares study guidance to ensure that necessary information is available to support the decision.

Technology Opportunities

Promising technologies can be identified from any number or sources including government laboratories and centers, academia, the commercial sector, foreign sources, and SBIR-developed technologies. Important factors to consider include:

• Minimizing the risk of introducing technologies into the acquisition process
• Promotion of coordination, cooperation, and mutual understanding of technology issues
• Facilitate (don’t preclude) future competition

ACC engineers help the PM ensure that information architecture development is built upon the DoD Enterprise Architecture and that each integrated solution architecture provides operational, systems, and technical views.
