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
