Abstract:

Senior national security leaders face a diverse set of threats and greater uncertainty than in the past. They have called for adaptable or agile organizations and weapon systems to address this uncertainty. We focus on what this means for weapon system acquisition interms of design, threats, and processes. Additionally, we show how metrics can be quantitatively used to help leadership understand the costs and benefits of adaptable and non-adaptable weapon systems.
