Mosaic Warfare: Busting Monoliths

  1. 1. The 4th Annual Doing Business With DoD & The IC Tuesday, December 3, 2019
  2. 2. Mosaic Warfare : Busting Monoliths Dr. Timothy Grayson Tuesday, December 3, 2019
  3. 3. Today’s problem IRBM: Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile SRBM: Short-Range Ballistic Missile
  4. 4. System of Systems delivers lethality by busting monolithic platforms
  5. 5. Mosaic Warfare busts complexity and brittleness of monolithic architectures
  6. 6. Mosaic uses speed to provide greater value with less complexity The more specific and certain the problem, the easier the solution
  7. 7. Dominance drives a survivability-based mindset, sacrifices Lethality Outcome: • Compromises, can’t do everything optimally • Expensive, slow to build, complex • Risk intolerant
  8. 8. A better balanced force pivots to a focus on Lethality “Kick-in-the-door” capability moves force projection efficiency back to optimal with conventional balance of forces Outcome: • Capability specialized to task • More lethal, resilient force • Lower net acquisition cost
  9. 9. What is needed for Mosaic Warfare?
  10. 10. DARPA integrating systems via a new toolchain: STITCHES • Generate message translators for new and existing components • Enable interoperability between and within connected platforms • Create new architectures in hours, not years STITCHES Example: Integrate a Radar and Targeting Pod
  11. 11. Mosaic Warfare stimulates new business models • New types of services businesses (cf. Geek Squad) • Commercially-inspired marketplace style acquisition • Engaging with non-traditional companies and partnering with the venture community
  12. 12. How can you get involved? • Start of an idea • Office Strategy (OD ideas, offsites) • Program Manager’s ideas • Interaction with Service partners • Industry • How does industry provide input? • Talk to Program Managers! • Seedlings (Office-Wide BAA) • Special authorities for small businesses and universities (SBIR/STTR) • Secret to a successful concept/proposal: Answer the “Heilmeier Questions” • Become a DARPA PM!
