Specific to night-vision requirements, NVRSTA routinely develops "a whole basket" of NV improvements much more quickly than the traditional military way of slow, ponderous laboratory development with an equally slow transition to manufacturing and fielding.
"For, say, an IR rifle scope, the spec would list weight and range and battery life and how it mounts," explained Gresham, "but we don't drive the vendor toward any particular design or technology." This allows NVRSTA, according to Gresham, to grab technology out of a DOD lab, if it's at a stage where it can fill the immediate bill, to quickly go out through a best-value solicitation to get an idea from industry if they're either ready to go into production, or to enter a very quick R&D process and then perhaps into low-rate initial production.
"A good example of fast procurement for need is ongoing duty in the Gulf," said NVRSTA's Gresham.
