Open Architectures for Agile Acquisition

A Workshop at Wright Brother's Institute WBI 444 E 2nd Street Dayton OH 45402


Join us as Dayton Defense hosts Chris Garrett, AFMC's senior engineer in Open Mission System architecting for USAF weapon systems. Chris will speak on AFLCMC's leadership in Open Architectures for Agile Acquisition. His team's work is impacting how the USAF modifies Air Force legacy weapon systems and develops future designs, in order to facilitate rapid configuration changes in response to today/tomorrow's near-peer threats.
