Abstract:

The objective of this project was to broaden the capabilities of the Office of Naval Technology CBW Defense Programs PEM to develop and monitor an integrated 6.2 research program. Initially intended to encompass tri-service RD over the past 10-15 years, it became apparent early in the project that the critical elements for the PEM were the clear delineation of that positions information needs to support program decisions and the PEMs ability to subsequently monitor program actions throughout the PPBS cycle. Thus, the focus of the project changed from the identification of CB warfare defense program RD results to the definition of a viable system to support the PEM in review and evaluation of Program Objective Memorandum POM submissions for the Navy 6.2 CBW defense program. While not an alteration to the work statement, the emphasis of the research placed on a system for meeting the future needs of the PEM allocating resources and tracking the progress of the 6.2 programs. An additional element that emerged as significant was the PEMs ability to monitor research of 6.1 programs that are candidates for transition to the 6.2 program.
