  11. Group Projects
  12. Group Project • Problem Statement Review and Feedback • 5 minutes per group • Blunt and direct feedback • “Socratic method with a stick” - Steve Blank • We give feedback this way because it will help you move faster; indirect feedback takes too long for the course
  13. The gap between U.S. and Chinese military capabilities is rapidly closing and poses a threat to U.S. military dominance in the Indo-Pacific Region. In order to maintain our capability gap, the DoD needs to reevaluate and improve its funding strategies and partnerships with mid-stage private companies that have potential for dual-use technologies, which will play a vital role in catalyzing U.S. military innovation. Team 1: Team AVCI
  14. Team 2: Team Conflicted Capital Chinese adversarial venture capital investments in US dual-use startups continue to threaten US military capabilities across critical technologies. Despite the passing of FIRRMA in 2018 and updates to CFIUS in 2020, American regulations controlling foreign investment are still largely voluntary. As the Chinese State increasingly comprehends how to circumvent US regulations, it becomes imperative to address the challenge from the other side – the private sector. Current venture capitalist and startup founder sentiments indicate that American startups would shun known sources of Chinese funding. The problem amounts to exposing undisclosed Chinese State connections to venture capital funding.
  15. Team 3: Project Aurora Hong Kong presents a unique opportunity to support activists currently attempting to maintain democratic institutions inside the PRC. The US can amplify its soft power by supporting these activists through facilitating free information access and secure communications channels outside the control of the CCP security apparatus. The US should pursue opportunities to support pro-democracy activists, particularly when they use protests, unsanctioned expression, or other mobilization activities to advocate for self-determination. The US government should support this through cyber and commerce policies that support companies who resist CCP restrictions; discrete security and technical support for activists; and the establishment of immigration policies that facilitate Hong Kong residents’ living and working in America, free from PRC interference.
  16. In order to maximize the impact of the estimated $1 billion USD allocated in the CHIPS act to stimulate semiconductor education and innovation, and produce talented hardware expertise in the U.S., Congress needs to surmount differing consensus among academia, industry, and venture capital. The policy makers crafting this bill need to be aware of the various positions interested in this allocation, and informed of the risks and rewards associated with each investment strategy. Team 4: Team ShortCircuit
  17. To enhance the command and control capabilities of Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense (MND) and protect friendly forces, team Drone identifies low cost, survivable Counter Small Unmanned Aircraft System (C- sUAS) solutions aimed at dynamically detecting, tracking, and engaging emerging aerial, swarm based platforms likely to be used by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) during the initial phase of an amphibious landing on Taiwan. Team 5: Team Drones
  18. Given the prospect of a cross-strait conflict with China, the US Space Force must proactively partner with the private sector to develop a resilient asset network and increase the wartime readiness of its space assets. Team 6: Apollo
  19. The CCP’s increasingly common use of coercive diplomacy tactics such as trade sanctions and investment restrictions, combined with America’s limited response in support of our targeted allies in the South Pacific, poses a threat to our strategic position in the region. The U.S. requires a collective response counterstrategy in tandem with Australia to eliminate the leverage China can achieve toward disrupting the alliance. Team 7: Catena
