US DoD Establishes Advisory Group to Analyze Technology Transition Success

Heidi Shyu, Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering, has introduced the Transition Tracking Action Group (TTAG) to facilitate smoother technology transitions within the US Department of Defense (DoD).

TTAG aims to utilize advanced data analytics to monitor and optimize the delivery of capabilities to the field. A key goal for the group is to establish a comprehensive department-wide framework for tracking technology transitions and understanding the factors influencing the successful or unsuccessful adoption of capability-enhancing technologies.

"Our goal is to help the Department of Defense connect data systems to create a common operating picture, which will help deliver the right capability to the Joint Force. This initiative will not only facilitate the delivery of the right capabilities to the Joint Force but also ensure efficient stewardship of taxpayer funds,” Defense Research and Engineering’s (R&E's) Chief Data Officer, Cyrus Jabbari said.

TTAG forms an integral component of a comprehensive set of initiatives outlined by Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks, aimed at methodically identifying and addressing the most significant obstacles in defense innovation.

This initiative represents a holistic approach across the entire department to drive digital transformation and facilitate the efficient integration of advanced analytics.

By leveraging the advancements achieved in recent years, the Department aims to empower technology, acquisition, and end-user communities to capitalize on the benefits of enhanced analytics capabilities.
