focus the big three
FOCUS -- THE BIG THREE
  • Three Key Points I continue to drive home with the workforce and our customers.
    • 1. We take our mission seriously, we don’t take ourselves seriously.
    • 2. Our job is to get our customers to their finish line.
    • 3. We want our customers to want us on their teams, not have to have us on their teams.
  • and the key to successful implementation….
transforming
Transforming
  • As a necessity due the Army’s role with MI-17 and furthered now with the adoption of DOD Directive 5030.61…
    • AED’s role now includes validating/verifying processes rather than conducting detailed engineering data analysis when determining airworthiness acceptability of foreign airworthiness authorities.

what lies ahead
WHAT LIES AHEAD
  • The Good
    • Leading the way in DoD and FAA for Unmanned System Qualification policy and solutions
    • Key foreign allies desire for AED technical support of their efforts
    • Energetic young, and not so young employees
    • Continued growth of our professionals
    • Army Aviation
what lies ahead1
WHAT LIES AHEAD
  • The Challenges
    • Sequestration isn’t going away anytime soon
      • Rep McKeon’s comments just this week…
  • Our customer budgets are shrinking
    • 80+ % of our money comes from our customers…
  • Continued “quality of life” pressures
  • Hiring freeze – so struggling to build the bench
  • With that said:
    • AED will continue to make the choice to be happy and motivated.
    • We are a proud organization that looks forward to continuing to provide quality and timely products to our customers.
