Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration (ACTD) -----------------------------

  • Mark Peterson

  • Head, Program Resources & Integration

  • Deputy Under Secretary of Defense

  • Advanced Systems & Concepts


  • National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) Conference

  • ACTDs rapidly field emergent mature technologies to joint warfighters

    • Balanced emphasis on tailoring technology with associated Tactics, Techniques, & Procedures (TTPs) to user needs
  • Primary customers for ACTDs are joint Combatant Commanders

    • Joint, Coalition, & transformational opportunities are priorities
    • ACTDs require a Lead Service/Agency and a CoCom Sponsor
  • ACTDs are not an acquisition/procurement program

    • Charter is to minimize processes that delay rapid fielding of demonstrations
    • Overcoming resistance to transformational concepts
    • “Rack & Stack” voting process used to select Candidate slate inside the Planning, Programming, Budgeting & Execution (PPBE) process
      • Example: FY 2006 selection is in process now

ACTD Projects Positioned between S&T & Acquisition

Resource Perspective: Core Military Capabilities and Joint Enablers

  • Characterization of CoCom Needs:

  • Core Service-specific capabilities (~80%?)

  • Joint military capabilities (~20%?)

  • Nature of CoCom Joint Needs:

  • Interactive, Multi-Service core military capabilities

  • Joint enabling capabilities

  • Unique Regional/Specified mission needs

Can the Current ACTD business process be improved? – Current Model


  • Time is right to take the best parts of the ACTD program and initiate a new business model…the Joint Capability Technology Demonstration (JCTD)

  • JCTD developed based on:

    • GAO Audit (2002): Break traditional barriers to transition “joint” technologies
    • Defense Science Board (2003): Strengthen the CoCom influence
    • Joint Capability Study (2004 “Aldridge Study”): Better “joint” business models
    • Internal OSD direction (2004-2005):
      • SECDEF/CJCS: “Joint has become the rule--is no longer an occasional luxury” --- “Rapidly changing environment and Global War on Terror (GWOT) has created the need to develop Joint capabilities more rapidly”
      • Enhance the ACTD program & provide better visibility of funding
      • Leverage the Joint Capabilities Integrated Development System (JCIDS process) to establish an improved process for transitioning ACTDs to acquisition programs
    • Congressional influence (2005) : Maintain focus on the acceleration of innovative, relevant capabilities to meet most critical warfighter needs

Why Evolve ACTDs To JCTDs Now?

  • “It’s the right thing to do”: (ADM Fargo, USPACOM)

    • CoCom customers need an early voice in needs process that responds quickly.
    • AT&L can provide a compelling joint approach as an answer to:
      • Starting fast (inside the PPBE process).
      • Prevents breaking Service programs at the start of each ACTD.
      • Addresses the “Valley of Death” between successful demonstrated capabilities & transition to acquisition/sustainment.
      • GAO, Congressional, DSB, and other studies which support the philosophy of the JCTD initiative.

ACTD/JCTD Back-up Slides and Questions

Overview Joint Capability Technology Demonstration (JCTD) (Four parts to the 3-5 year initiative to transform the ACTD program to JCTD)

  • Front-end incentive funds create fair-share partnership. First two years of Service resources fenced in OSD. (JCTD PE will eventually replace ACTD PE)

    • Incentive to participate without breaking Service core programs. Also provides stability of funding. The Best JCTDs “win” the resources.
  • Creation of new JCTD specific Program Elements (Defense Wide and Service) (New D/W JCTD PE’s have been created RDT&E BA-3/4/5)

    • Visibility and Accountability of funds
    • Allows time for Services to POM for outyears as JCTD proves successful
  • One year of Transition funding (New OSD JCTD PE in RDT&E BA-4)

    • Bridge the S&T capability “Valley of Death” – DoD prepared to “catch” successful capabilities without destructive delays
  • Defense Acquisition Executive (DAE) Pilot program – Transition “Joint Peculiar” systems into a fielded capability (New OSD PEs: RDT&E BA-5, OSD Procurement). Lays the groundwork for USD (AT&L) to pilot new acquisition models and look at ways to address joint challenges identified in the Joint Capability Study (“Aldridge Study”).

    • Tracking joint capability through acquisition into initial sustainment

Quotes on Joint Needs "The ability of the armed services – the Army, the Navy, the Air Force, the Marine Corps and the Coast Guard – to work together is increasing. It has to increase. Jointness has to become the rule and not an occasional luxury.” Secretary of Defense Speech at the Association of the U.S. Army Annual Meeting, Phoenix, Oct. 27, 2004 “The rapidly changing international environment and the global war on terrorism require that we create joint capabilities more quickly.” General Myers, CJCS (Joint Force Quarterly: Summer 2002)
