SESSION ONE: BUILDING THE INTELLIGENCE 2020 FUTURE FORCE

Overview

The Army is at a turning point. Over the past decade, the Army has focused its efforts on fighting two wars and optimizing its structure, training and operational concepts to best address the threats and conditions encountered in Iraq and Afghanistan. Among the greatest challenges we face is the pace of change, both in technology and in the conditions we find in each theater. As a result, even as we integrate new capabilities into our intelligence force, we must constantly upgrade the equipment, the tools and the advance skill training that we provide to ensure that our intelligence formations deploy  with the right skills and equipment.  In this spirit, as part of Army Intelligence 2020, we will continue to build the Army MI force of the future, investing in the right mix of new and emerging technologies to meet the demands of a robust, regionally aligned and responsive Army, while providing solutions that allow our Soldiers to leverage the technology, expertise and intelligence in our Intelligence Enterprise.  Our way ahead will continue to focus on developing and refining our investments in DCGS-A, RITE, ISCA, Foundry/IROC and Enhances Force Structure within fiscal restraints. Working with joint, multinational and industry partners, we have a number of exciting opportunities to accelerate our progress towards the Intelligence 2020 end state.

SESSION TWO: KEY S&T AND ENABLING-THE-ENTERPRISE CHALLENGES FOR INTEL 2020 AND BEYOND

Overview 

The evolving strategic landscape and its wide range of potential threats are increasingly complex.  It is clear that advancements in intelligence capabilities - in analysis, in architectures, and in the use by Soldiers - remain a critical focus.  This panel will discuss their perspectives of the key challenges that evolve from the concepts of Intelligence 2020, and those aspects which will require scientific and technological investment to bring  to operational implementation.  Following the speaker  presentations, there will be a panel discussion and a Q&A session.

Focus Questions

  • What are the key Science and Technology (S&T) and Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E) capability investment priorities being developed and implemented by the Army, with focus on Intelligence 2020?"
  • What areas should the private sector concentrate their internal R&D priorities over the next 3-5 years?
  • What are the key enabling capabilities to hone the enterprise and COE in order to enhance situational awareness, visualization and operational decision making ?
  • How can Industry partners help Army Intelligence meet the future warfighting vision?

SESSION THREE: THE ARMY STRATEGIC MODERNIZATION PLAN

Overview

In the current complex and uncertain international security environment, the Army is being asked to do more without additional resources.  Clearly, it must find ways to manage resources more efficiently and effectively and provide even better stewardship of taxpayer dollars.  This means promoting partnerships and transparency with industry and academia, pursuing more and greater acquisition efficiencies and exacting high standards from the Army’s acquisition workforce.  It also means continually assessing and improving our business practices to best support the needs of our most important customer:  the American Soldier.

Focus Questions

  • What is the Army’s strategic direction for S&T and RDT&E?
  • What are the significant milestones for the next 30 years?
  • What are the 2-5 year, near-term priorities given an outlook of reduced resources?

Speaker:

The Honorable Heidi Shyu

Assistant Secretary of the Army, Acquisition, Logistics and Technology (ASA(ALT))

BREAK

2:15 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

SESSION FOUR: ASA(ALT) AND PEO PRIORITIES TO SUPPORT ARMY INTELLIGENCE 2020 AND BEYOND

Overview

Improving situational awareness and enabling soldiers at the forward edge continues to factor prominently among acquisition and research priorities. The Army is reassessing S&T across all portfolios to ensure that S&T is properly linked to our acquisition roadmap and able to facilitate 'insertion' opportunities aligning technologies over time. This reassessment, coupled with the ongoing Operations - Intelligence convergence initiative, will produce efficiencies as mission command systems transition from standalone products to shared, interoperable applications in order to better hone tactical level collaboration and the common operating picture.  The ongoing drawdown in Afghanistan, coupled with a renewed emphasis toward the Asia Pacific theater, represents an important time of transition for Army modernization as the force endeavors to best position itself for a full range of potential future contingencies.  In face of these transitions and fiscal uncertainties, the Army’s incremental approach to network modernization will allow it to continually add improved technologies and field the right mix of capabilities.

Focus Questions

  • What is the overall vision for Ops-Intel convergence?
  • Which intelligence technologies are critical to enable the Intelligence 2020 vision;  How does the ASA(ALT) acquisition roadmap address COE: Ops Intel Convergence? How can industry contribute?
  • What network capabilities will be available to enable intelligence mission priorities?
