Research development and acquisition rd a
Research Development and Acquisition (RD&A)

  • Acquisition

    • “The Defense Acquisition System exists to manage the Nation's investments in technologies, programs, and product support necessary to achieve the National Security Strategy and support the United States Armed Forces. … (the) continued objective is to rapidly acquire quality products that satisfy user needs with measurable improvements to mission capability at a fair and reasonable price. The fundamental principles and procedures that the Department follows in achieving those objectives are described in DoD Directive 5000.1 and DoD Instruction 5000.2.”

    • “…How the DoD acquires weapons systems and automated information systems…”

RD&A

  • Science & Technology

    • Projects at 6.1, 6.2, and 6.3 - basic, applied and advanced technology development focused 10+ years out

    • ~2.7% of DoD budget, 18% of DoD RDT&E budget

    • Performed by defense agencies / service labs, universities, and industry

    • Will lead to development of new technologies which will protect our forces and ensure U.S.military dominance

    • Examples: Nanotechnology / Nanobiotechnology; Enhanced computing technologies; Self-healing & monitoring technologies; Improved explosives detection etc.

NEW!

“The world requires at least ten years to understand a new idea, however important or simple it may be.” Sir Ronald Ross

  • Focus – “Disruptive Technology”

    • Employment of Novel Technology / Novel Use of Technology

    • Changes how we “Fly & Flight” Before the Fight

    • Forces Adversary to React to our Innovations

  • Medical Innovations Office; Parallel LAF

    • Identify new operational and systems concepts capable of dramatically transforming medical capabilities thru disruptive innovation

Current Initiatives:

- Healthcare Diagnostics & Surveillance

- Personalized Healthcare / Genomic Prevention

Fly – Fight – Win


Human performance wing
Human Performance Wing

  • Restore “Iron Triangle” of Research, Training + Operations

    • Co-locate & align AFRL & 311th HSW

      • USAFSAM

      • AFIOH + Applied Tech Center

      • Support activities
