Christopher Zember and Jay Harrison

The Defense Department has some significant blind spots when it comes to its ability to assess what's going on in the global technology landscape -- especially in the commercial and non-defense markets.

The new Technology Domain Awareness initiative is a project of DoD's Information Analysis Centers. Christopher Zember is the director of the Information Analysis Centers.

They explained the initial drive behind TDA on In Depth with guest host Jared Serbu.
