Legacy of HSARPA NameHow is it different from DARPA?
  • Differences
    • 85-90% of funds for identified DHS requirements
    • 10-15% of funds for revolutionary research
      • Breakthroughs,
      • New technologies and systems

<<Dr Jane A. Alexander -Homeland Security Symp-Expos.ppt .ppt>>

dhs systems needs differ from dod and other agency systems needs
DHS Systems Needs Differ from DoD and Other Agency Systems Needs
  • “Zero” false positives at the system level
  • Affordability is a performance characteristic;
    • “If it’s not affordable…zero performance”
  • System matches regional needs
    • Tailored to existing vulnerabilities, governments, methods of operations and legacy systems
  • Cannot mandate Federal solutions

<<Dr Jane A. Alexander -Homeland Security Symp-Expos.ppt .ppt>>

technology strategy
Technology Strategy
  • DOD
    • “Train as you fight… fight as you train”
  • DHS
    • Deal with emergency using strengths built to handle everyday missions

<<Dr Jane A. Alexander -Homeland Security Symp-Expos.ppt .ppt>>

legacy of hsarpa name how is it like darpa
Legacy of HSARPA NameHow is it like DARPA?
  • Similarities
    • Program Manager owns program
    • Active technical leadership of program
    • Full range of contracting vehicles
    • Common technology base with DoD

<<Dr Jane A. Alexander -Homeland Security Symp-Expos.ppt .ppt>>

hsarpa program defined
HSARPA Program Defined
  • Coordinated R&D efforts that accomplish a specific mission-oriented objective
  • Delivers: capability, hardware, software, prototype, algorithm, demonstration of feasibility, etc.
  • Defined schedule, funding, & risk management strategy
    • May be phased
    • May include downselects
  • Not just a collection of contracts

<<Dr Jane A. Alexander -Homeland Security Symp-Expos.ppt .ppt>>

program management process
Program Management Process

Planning

Solicitation

Contract

Execution

  • Communicating our plans
  • Providing useful context
  • Presenting priorities
  • Posting solicitations
  • Solicitation process – White Papers
  • Submitting proposals
  • Different programs demand different contract vehicles
  • Use flexibility to match mission
  • Programs tailored to meet unique conditions of objectives
  • Minimum bureaucracy

<<Dr Jane A. Alexander -Homeland Security Symp-Expos.ppt .ppt>>

communication is important bureaucracy isn t
Communication Is Important, Bureaucracy Isn’t
  • To get the best efforts, we need continuous communication
  • If you have a good idea:
    • First, look for an open solicitation
    • Second, call or email us
    • If we resonate, then send a short white paper
    • If still good, then send a full proposal
  • Continue communication during execution

<<Dr Jane A. Alexander -Homeland Security Symp-Expos.ppt .ppt>>

r d priorities
