The Pentagon launched 12 airstrikes against the Islamic State militants in Iraq during the last 24 hours. As Operation Inherent Resolve continues -- and becomes more expensive -- it highlights a need to develop more cost efficient military strategies. Retired Navy Capt. Jerry Hendrix is former Director of Naval History. Hendrix is now senior fellow and director of the new Defense Strategies and Assessments Program at the Center for a New American Security. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he explained how the program will analyze and create new military strategies that emphasize cost effectiveness and innovation.
Women of Washington radio show hosts Aileen Black and Gigi Schumm talk to Karen Dahut, executive vice president and leader of the Strategic Innovation Group at Booz Allen Hamilton, about what companies need to do to embrace innovation, especially in the public sector.
President Richard Nixon once joked with Israeli prime minister Golda Meir. He said he'd give her three U.S. generals in exchange for the legendary Moshe Dyan. Meir answered, sure, I'll take General Motors, General Electric and General Dynamics. Today's Defense Industrial Base is operating in a changing and uncertain economy. In the last few years, it's been hit by Defense spending cutbacks. Nayantara Hensel, former chief economist for the Navy, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to describes what this means to the Defense Industrial Base and to the Defense enterprise.
Jerry Punderson, the outgoing director of contracts for the Naval Sea Systems Command, will join PSC as its new senior vice president of defense and intelligence.
Navy ship crews encounter a reoccurring problem with something as routine as maintenance requests. It takes 89 administrative steps to turn a request into actual work. Ordinary tasks like laying a non-skid surface on a weather deck get bogged down in paperwork. Now, there is a plan to fix that. Rear Adm. Bill Galinis, Commander of the Navy Regional Maintenance Centers, spoke with Tom Temin on the Federal Drive about the Navy's plans to improve the process.
What are the strategic priorities for the Navy's PEO for Enterprise Information Systems? How is the Navy balancing cost with systems capability? What is the Navy's PEO EIS doing to realize greater operational effectiveness? Join host Michael Keegan as he explores these questions and more with Victor Gavin, Program Executive Officer for Enterprise Information Systems within the U.S. Department of the Navy.
A heightened focus of the training will be on bystander intervention, which Navy leaders believe is a major component to stemming the tide of sexual assaults that have flummoxed military officials for years.
On this week's show, a deep dive into military personnel management within the Navy. Our guest for the full hour is Vice Adm. Bill Moran, the Chief of Naval Personnel.
After years of acquisition planning, bid protests and then eventually a rolling process of migrating users from one contract to another, the Navy says all of its users will have moved to its new NGEN contract by the end of this month.
Within the next few weeks, the Navy said it will finally finish its transition to a new operating structure for its IT network. As Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu reports, all of the Navy's 300,000 users will be operating under a contract structure known as NGEN by the end of this month.
The Navy has made an important step in advancing its aerial strike and surveillance technology. It's found a way to blend unmanned and manned jets on the same aircraft carrier. Aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt off of the Virginia coast, the Navy successfully completed a test. A self-guided plane took off, landed and then maneuvered out of the way for a manned jet to land. Rear Adm. Mat Winter is the program executive for Unmanned Aviation and Strike Weapons at Naval Air Systems Command. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain why the test runs are important to the Navy.
The Navy has built an unmanned undersea vehicle that mimics the motions of the fish it resembles. The robotic fish is packed with acoustic sensors and cameras. Navy developers hope it will carry out a range full of missions like undersea mine detection or prolonged surveillance of ships, ports and submarines. Capt. Jim Loper is the concepts and innovation department head at the Navy Warfare Development Command in Norfolk, Virginia. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with details on Robo Tuna.
Navy Region Mid-Atlantic undergoes change in command
On this week's edition of On DoD, we discuss strategic sourcing in the Navy, plus the current state of the financial management workforce in DoD.
If you've been to an air show, you've seen them: The Blue Angels. They're the Navy's flight demonstration squadron zooming in formation in meticulously painted F-18s. Tom Temin caught up with Lt. Cmdr. John Hiltz, number 2 pilot and right wing, on the Federal Drive as the Angels prepare to receive new recruits. He told Tom about the crew of 130 that make the show happen day in and day out.
Right now, the Navy has more than 630 network baselines on its ships at sea. A contract the service awarded this week aims to change that. The Navy is committing up to $2.5 billion to five vendors who will replace that IT mishmash with a single, standards based network architecture. Federal News Radio's DoD Reporter Jared Serbu reports. Read Jared's related article.
The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity award will converge the heterogeneous IT architectures aboard Navy ships - all 630 of them - into a single, standards based architecture.
At least 34 sailors are being kicked out of the Navy for their roles in a cheating ring that operated undetected for at least seven years at a nuclear power training site.
When the Navy needs to reform a program it sometimes turns to a special test called an Analysis of Alternatives. Right now the Navy's analysts are hard at work on acquisition reform. Ryan Dickover is director of eBusiness Policy and Oversight in the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development and Acquisition. He explained the AoA process on In Depth with Francis Rose.
