Upcoming Webinars


'The Systems Challenges of Cyber-Security' by Jeff Sili


Thu, Feb 23, 2017 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST

Cyber-security engineering principles are typically considered after the design phase of the DOD acquisition process. For Navy combat system acquisitions programs, for example, cyber-security evaluations typically have been evaluated during a process called Platform Information Technology (PIT) Risk Approval (PRA) for systems that do not touch the Global Information Grid (GIG). This PRA process provides an identification of the Information Technology (IT) accreditation boundary including hardware, software, internal and external communication exchanges, listing of Information Assurance (IA) deficiencies, the risk mitigation for each risk identified and the mitigated residual risks with associated risk charts. With the introduction of a new process called Risk Management Framework (RMF) for DOD IT systems and the application of National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) controls for other IT commercial systems, cyber-security can be applied more effectively and efficiently to identify IT security requirements early in the acquisition process to influence the design phase. These controls will apply to multiple system/components and can be classified as technical, physical or procedural. The system engineering process needs to shift, with the emphasis on tracking these RMF controls and security requirements. The process will go on to track the multiple relationships in the design phase which is accomplished using CORE. This is the missing link to effective cyber-security implementation in the system engineering phase of the DOD acquisition process.

'How to Engineer a System of Systems Using CORE' by Fran McCafferty


Tue, Mar 21, 2017 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT

Establishing the framework for affordability is key in applying model-based systems engineering. Legacy systems are increasingly challenging to maintain in light of obsolescence, and Mission Systems Engineering objectives provide a direct on-ramp to system lifecycle affordability through modularity and competition.

Application of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) enables program offices to completely establish clear subsystem boundaries, capabilities, performance, and physical characteristics. MBSE will also enable straightforward technology insertion (New Missions), and obsolescence mitigation (Sustainment). MBSE provides the methodology and infrastructure to achieve the objectives. A secondary MBSE benefit is to enable program offices to compete subsystem upgrades and replacements that include small business participation. Competition at the subsystem level for major procurement items allows the government to compete acquisitions at the subsystem level, leading to improved capability at a better price.
