    Description:  

    Today, the U.S. military finds itself in a strategic competition with new competitors challenging us. History demonstrates a military that adapts better, learns quickly, improves faster, and gains warfighting advantages over the long haul fosters a culture that can assess, correct, and innovate better than their opponents. A Government Lead Systems Integrator (LSI) harnesses government resources to meet immediate and emerging warfighter needs enabling them to adapt better, improve faster, and gain the advantage. Partnering with and augmenting industry, a Government LSI can rapidly execute system modifications, cradle-to-grave life-cycle and sustainment projects. In this webinar you will learn about Government LSI, its benefits, and program management and engineering fundamentals from key members of AIRWorks, a team that has successfully executed Government LSI projects for the Navy and DoD partners since its establishment by the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) in 2014.

     

    Who should attend:  DoD Acquisition and Engineering professionals
