  1. 1. U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering CommandOpen Source and the ArmyRed Hat Government SymposiumPresented by: Maj. Gen. Nick Justice16 Nov. 2011 Distribution Statement A: Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited (15 November 2011)
  2. 2. Army Engineering ChallengesBolt-on systems are harder to integrate & operate
  3. 3. Systems Engineering Solution• Simplifying platforms for Soldiers is easier with openness – Bolt-on capabilities are harder to use, maintain and modernize – A single hardware architecture means open standards for interoperability Be careful how you define the problem Integrated solutions require standards
  4. 4. Army Procurement Realities The Army is the Service of scale
  5. 5. Army Procurement Realities Army must scale cost-effectively
  6. 6. Army Procurement Priorities Army Working Unmanned Warfighter Aerial Capital Fund Vehicles Information 8% than 1% less Brigade Network-Tactical 0% Combat Team 5% Modernization 27% Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles 8% Ammunition 14%Air Defense Systems Helicopters 8% 30%
  7. 7. Army HPC history
  8. 8. Better Buying Power Dr. Carter (USD(AT&L)) Implementation Memo for Better Buying Power1. TARGET AFFORDABILITY AND CONTROL COST GROWTH •Mandate affordability as a requirement2. INCENTIVIZE PRODUCTIVITY AND INNOVATION IN INDUSTRY3. PROMOTE REAL COMPETITION •Require open systems architectures and set rules for acquisition of technical data rights4. IMPROVE TRADECRAFT IN SERVICES ACQUISITION5. REDUCE NON-PRODUCTIVE PROCESSES AND BUREAUCRACY Building the case for Open Source 8
