Force Design 2030: Acquisition for the Future Battlefield

QUANTICO, Va. — The 2018 National Defense Strategy warns that U.S. adversaries are actively challenging the long-standing rules-based international order, thus “creating a security environment more complex and volatile than any we have experienced in recent memory.” Building on the Pentagon’s observations, Gen. David H. Berger, then-commandant of the Marine Corps, released his seminal 2019…


Notable Technical Inquiry

Using Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) to Detect, Deny, and Impact Various U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Domains

The Defense Systems Information Analysis Center (DSIAC) was asked to identify how UAS technologies are being used to improve maritime domain awareness and detect and deny IEDs. UASs have been recognized as a versatile platform that can pose threats in various domains to U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) personnel and government operators/agents. Two domains particularly challenged by developing UAS technologies are C-IEDs and maritime domain…
