CHIPS: Do you work with industry, the universities and the naval research centers to transition ACTDs
The CASPOD ACTD
is a result of years of research and preparation.
, initiatives approved by the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) to demonstrate mature or emerging technologies as solutions for critical operational needs, complement USSOCOM technology efforts.
are based on advanced technologies which may permit, or even demand, new CONOPS, tactics, and doctrine in order to realize their maximum potential.
Under an earlier FTTS competition that was not part of the ACTD
, four companies (Oshkosh, Stewart & Stevenson, United Defense and GPV) received contracts to develop concepts, and demonstrate hybrid propulsion, C-130 transportability and pit-stop maintenance.
Some $70-100 million has been authorized for the first three years of the ACTD
program, plus two years of sustainment.
Advanced Concept Technology Demonstrations (ACTDS
) allow users to gain understanding of proposed new capabilities for which there is no user experience base.
Today at the Dubai Airshow, Mubadala Aerospace, Communications Technology and Defense Services (ACTDS
) and Rolls-Royce plc announced that they have entered into a Strategic Framework Agreement that will establish the Emirate of Abu Dhabi as a key member of Rolls-Royce s global network formaintenance and manufacturing activities.
Mubadala has recently combined its Aerospace, Communications Technology and Defence Services, or ACTDS
, business units to maximise the potential of their shared partnerships.
