At the average, an ACAT I started in 1993 would be coming on line today. How do we effectively and cost effectively integrate the technologies that have emerged in those 15 years?

We Are Not Keeping Pace w/Innovation Cycle

Why Emerging Tech Companies Don’t Come to Us

  • “They do not know what they want”

  • “The application/bid process takes too long”

  • “Our products are not needed by DoD”

  • “We do not want to work with DoD”

  • “There are too many barriers to the bid process”

  • “No opportunities for firms who have no prior contracts with DoD”

  • “I can do fine without them”

Why a wiki for dod technology collaboration

Success of Wikipedia, Intellipedia make Wikis more familiar, especially to Generations X and Y

Builds on how people are interacting at home and at schools

Increasing awareness of wikis in the DoD S&T user community is through interaction with Intellipedia’s S&T areas

Low technical barriers to entry

Browsers based - no specialized tools

Low bandwidth

Mass Collaboration addresses “Shared Situational Awareness” problem – All stakeholders benefit

Better S&T Community Integration

Industry gains awareness of DoD needs

DoD Capability Buyers get improved Market Research

Why a Wiki for DoD Technology Collaboration?

Goals

Goals

  • The principal goals of the NMATS include:

    • In coordination with the National Office of Global Maritime Situational Awareness (OGMSA)

      and the Global Maritime Intelligence Integration (GMAII),

  • Provide an effective methodology for the federal leadership to identify, participate in, and influence the technology-related processes and events supporting the federal role in the development of the nation’s maritime security.

    DODTECHIPEDIA - Effective Tool to assist Goals!


Goals continued

Goals (continued)

  • In coordination with OGMSA, GMAII and key MCOI organizations create a forum for the discovery and exploration of innovative acquisition processes and products that

    • Result in reduced expenditures and/or

    • Faster speed to capability in the transition of technology to the interagency member organizations (ensuring input from relevant operational commanders.)


Basic objectives are

Basic objectives are:

  • Assist all users to understand Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA)capabilities

    • Fielded

    • Under Acquisition

    • Under Development (6.1 to 6.5)

  • It will include:

    • Systems

    • Sub-systems

    • Enabling Technologies

  • Enable developers to identify sources of capabilities

  • Enable government R&D and acquisition managers to identify sources

  • Enable sub-systems / Technology developers to advertise their capabilities (database becomes an MDA Toolbox)

  • Provide the potential for fielding capabilities more rapidly for both government and non-government.

Provide opportunities for meeting anticipated long term needs

Provide opportunities for meeting anticipated long-term needs

  • In response to senior federal leadership,

    • in coordination with the OGMSA and the GMAII, and guided by the national maritime security objectives,

  • NMATS will be instrumental in the facilitating the development of best practices for both

    • Accelerated fielding of appropriate technology in the near term and

    • Identification of long-term future naval, joint and international capability development opportunities that meet defined and emergent MDA requirements.


Goals continued1

Goals (continued)

  • In coordination with OGMSA, GMAII and key MCOI organizations create a forum for the discovery and exploration of innovative acquisition processes and products that

    • Result in reduced expenditures and/or

    • Faster speed to capability in the transition of technology to the interagency member organizations (ensuring input from relevant operational commanders.)
