Seminar Overview

Seminar Overview

THE MODERN BATTLEFIELD IS MORE COMPLEX THAN EVER BEFORE

It involves leveraging multiple domains to achieve an advantage against the adversary in both strategic competition and armed conflict. As seen in the recent events in Ukraine, threats can change rapidly and come from any directions - including cyber or space.

The nature of the threats we face means that no single armed force, no single government department, and no single nation can defeat these adversaries on their own. Hence, an international collaboration between allied countries and a range of supporting industries is key to mitigating these threats.

Readiness 

Readiness 

The combination of Moore’s Law and recent geopolitical situations proves that speed and agility must be at the heart of defence strategy driving procurement.

Acquisition

Acquisition

The relationship between industry and end-user is under pressure to move away from the traditional ‘buyer-customer’ model and become a more mutual partnership.
Development

Development

It is crucial to have a strong shared understanding of requirements between the military and industry, to align military ambitions with existing industry capability.
Deployment

Deployment

Closer collaboration is essential to deliver fast fully-functional and deployable capabilities that meet mission requirements in the rapidly changing environment of the battlefield.

Rapid Acquisition and Development Theatre

The Rapid Acquisition Process (RAP) provides fast transition funding for the development and fielding of highly successful competitive experiments and demonstrations. It supports shortening the acquisition response time and acquisition cycle times by addressing every step of the procurement process.

Rapid development projects are characterised by short development timelines, typically 6-12 months. These capabilities are often purpose-built and expendable as they are designed to meet urgent needs, leveraging the most innovative technologies available.
