Designing for Resilience

@ 1:00
  • Event Survey

    Join to learn more about how practitioners should approach DMSMS as a constant thread throughout the life cycle.  It’s much more than trying to source a replacement for an obsolete part in sustainment.  Full awareness begins with system design, embodies parts resilience to set the stage for an effective DMSMS posture, includes Intellectual Property (IP) challenges and opportunities to enable sustainment, and includes understanding sources of parts that are introduced into your system, to name just a few considerations.  Kevin Boenning, US Army Command, Control, Communication, Computers, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) Center DMSMS Team Lead, will moderate a panel of subject matter experts sharing perspectives on DMSMS as a recurring theme throughout the life cycle, and the challenges of making it affordable and effective.
