Objectives

  • Exchange ideas among government and academic thought leaders regarding some of the most pressing and important research challenges DoD faces.
  • Learn about the ongoing research projects the SERC is conducting to address those research challenges.
  • Continue to mature the collaboration network among SERC researchers and government.

 

Themes

  • How should the systems engineering community respond to DoD’s seven science and technology priorities – with a specific focus on engineered resilient systems?
  • How can systems engineering be performed far more rapidly yet deliver full value?
  • Is model-based systems engineering ready for major acquisitions?
