key elements of defense strategic guidance
Key Elements ofDefense Strategic Guidance
  • The military will be smaller and leaner, but it will be agile, flexible, ready and technologically advanced.
  • Rebalance our global posture and presence to emphasize Asia-Pacific regions.
  • Build innovative partnerships and strengthen key alliances and partnerships elsewhere in the world.
  • Ensure that we can quickly confront and defeat aggression from any adversary – anytime, anywhere.
  • Protect and prioritize key investments in technology and new capabilities, as well as our capacity to grow, adapt and mobilize as needed.
2013 dod leadership focus challenges choices opportunities
2013 DoD Leadership Focus:Challenges, Choices, Opportunities

dasd systems engineering mission
DASD, Systems Engineering Mission

Systems Engineering focuses on engineering excellence − the creative application of scientific principles:

  • To design, develop, construct and operate complex systems
  • To forecast their behavior under specific operating conditions
  • To deliver their intended function while addressing economic efficiency, environmental stewardship and safety of life and property

DASD(SE) Mission: Develop and grow the Systems Engineering capability of the Department of Defense – through engineering policy, continuous engagement with component Systems Engineering organizations and through substantive technical engagement throughout the acquisition life cycle with major and selected acquisition programs.

A Robust Systems Engineering Capability Across the Department Requires Attention to Policy, People and Practice

  • US Department of Defense is the World’s Largest Engineering Organization
  • Over 99,000 Uniformed and Civilian Engineers
  • Over 39,000 in the Engineering (ENG) Acquisition Workforce

usd at l memorandum the new department of defense instruction 5000 02
USD(AT&L) Memorandum, “The New Department of Defense Instruction 5000.02”
  • “Our purpose of this new version is to implement a number of statutes and regulations that have come into existence since the last version was published in 2008…
  • I have tried to make the document more readable and helpful to acquisition professionals, both those new to the world of defense acquisition and those more experienced professionals…
  • The basic structure of the “acquisition system” is unchanged with minor exceptions… a “Requirements Decision Point” and a “Development RFP Release Decision Point”
  • Updating 5000.02 provided an opportunity to integrate several of the Better Buying Power initiatives…
  • Finally, I have also tried to reinforce the importance and primacy of the acquisition chain of command – particularly the Program Executive Officers (PEOs) and PMs…”

“It is about us all constantly working to make the acquisition system as efficient and effective as we can.”

    • Model 1: Hardware Intensive Program
    • Model 2: Defense Unique Software Intensive Program
    • Model 3: Incrementally Fielded Software Intensive Program
    • Model 4: Accelerated Acquisition Program
    • Hybrid Program A (Hardware Dominant)
    • Hybrid Program B (Software Dominant)
  • All models recognize the critical role of software

protecting information
Protecting Information

“America must also face the rapidly growing threat from cyber-attacks… We cannot look back years from now and wonder why we did nothing in the face of real threats to our security and our economy.

“We are going to aggressively protect our intellectual property. Our single greatest asset is the innovation and the ingenuity and creativity of the American people. It is essential to our prosperity and it will only become more so in this century.”

President Barack ObamaFebruary 2013
