Strategic Imperatives For Defense Industry


Hypersonic missiles are disrupting military tactics as nations look for ways to defend against them. Detecting, intercepting, and neutralizing such weapons poses an intricate and costly challenge.


The US Armed Forces are not hiring enough personnel, including those who can operate advanced equipment, resulting in the need for better recruitment and technical training for military success.


There exists a pressing need to seamlessly integrate new technology with legacy systems to upgrade military capabilities and leverage standards-based commercial technologies.


How do you shift from where you are to what you want to become? How do you fill the gap?

Based on those strategic imperatives the gap between where you are now and where you need to be to achieve transformational growth is daunting.
