The Army is excited about its newest construct for figuring out what technology to buy and develop. Rather than leaving the design of new systems up to Pentagon planners, the Army is putting ideas that might have potential into the hands of soldiers, early and often. That’s the whole idea behind the Army’s Network Integration Evaluation, the NIE, at Fort Bliss, Texas.
Col. John Morrison, director of the Army’s LandWarNet Battle Command, the office that’s in charge of integrating Army capabilities at the NIE, joins On DoD with Jared Serbu.
On DoD focuses on the programs and policies that affect the Defense Department. Each week, Defense Reporter Jared Serbu speaks one-on-one and in depth with the people responsible for managing the inner workings of the federal government's largest department, and those who know it best.
