This workshop report outlines the key capability and technology enablers for the Joint Warfighting Concept (JWC), including its four Strategic Directives: JADC2, Joint Fires, Contested Logistics, and Information Advantage. This report is based on four workshops ETI held between May and October 2022, which looked at what each Directive is trying to achieve and what technical or engineering tasks are needed so DoD can address the operational challenges that the JWC describes.
This report assesses the state of defense microelectronics modernization. The white paper finds current challenges and bottlenecks to the process before providing actionable policy recommendations for ensuring that more modern microelectronics can be incorporated into defense systems in a timely and cost-effective manner.
ETI in collaboration with the Office of the Chief Scientist of the Air Force and NDIA's Science & Engineering Technology Division hosted a workshop titled, "Strengthening DoD-Industry-Academia Collaboration to Increase STEM Engagement with MSIs." The event focused on identifying barriers and incentives for bringing more STEM students at Minority Serving Institutions into the Department of Defense and defense industrial base. This report outlines the key observations and recommendations discussed at the workshop.
ETI and Carnegie Mellon University’s Software Engineering Institute hosted a workshop titled, “Software as a Modernization Priority”. The event focused on finding innovative ways to research, deliver, and modernize defense software capabilities. This report outlines the key observations and recommendations resulting from that discussion.
This report studies DoD’s S&T funding requests and appropriations over time, analyzing the trends across various strategic “moments” in the 21st century.
This report assesses the current state of hypersonic systems’ supply chains and provides actionable policy recommendations for their development, health, and resilience.
NDIA’s ETI brought together industry experts and the authors of the Defense Innovation Unit’s (DIU) “State of the Space Industrial Base 2022” for a workshop to discuss critical steps the United States must take to maintain its leadership position in space.
NDIA’s Logistics Division and ETI conducted a workshop on pilot programs related to Conditions-Based Maintenance for DoD, convening experts from government, industry and academia.
This report outlines specific areas of practice unique to DoD where digital engineering can support better program outcomes and accelerate modernization.
ETI hosted a workshop focused on how DoD can accelerate the delivery of emerging technologies while balancing against budget pressures elsewhere in its portfolio.
