Duration: 1 hour

C4ISR is becoming increasingly important to military readiness in the new era of defense, but DoD’s ability to maintain a decisive technological edge may be at risk.

Join Government Business Council (GBC), the research division of Government Executive Media Group, and Booz Allen Hamilton for a revealing digital town hall discussion on the need for DoD acquisition reform, challenges in specific areas such as C4ISR, and opportunities for improvement.

Get the first look at the results of a new survey of 340 defense leaders speaking out on critical questions such as:

  • Why C4ISR acquisition reform is more important than ever
  • Why greater government involvement in designing requirements could improve the acquisition process
  • How to acquire, develop, and manage a government-owned system of systems (SoS)
