On 8 November 2018, UTIC’s partner organization, SENEDIA, held a Tech Talk on Accelerating Acquisition through Rapid Prototyping and Rapid Fielding.
Denise Crimmins, Navy Director, USW Rapid Prototyping, presented information on DON’s efforts to more rapidly test and field needed warfighter technology. Rapid prototyping aims to achieve quick wins, moving technology along faster to inform longer range programs. The needs are steep, but the difference is in working with the warfighter to prioritize needs and working the process in parallel to go faster.
