National security agencies face a barrage of asymmetric threats across many different operational and technical domains. Consider the threats posed by the five interrelated domains: land, maritime, air, space, and cyberspace. Each threat is dynamic and unpredictable in its rate of evolution.
Operational leaders are charged with countering these threats. In turn, they task the Department of Defense (DoD) acquisition role to provide solutions. Increasingly, the DoD is turning to modern software development tactics and automated platforms to improve the efficiency of mission effectiveness.
In this paper, we’ll describe how warfighter-centric design and a modern platform optimize:
- First order improvements (Mission Effectiveness Improvements)
- Second order improvements (Operational Usability Improvements)
- Third order improvements (Programmatic Improvements)
