Key takeaways

  • “Digital Engineering is a critical piece to help us move at the speed of relevance.” — Lt. Col Alex “STOIKY” Goldberg, DIU
  • “We’re exploring ways to actually open up the weapons system and for it to be a living and breathing system that can live and breathe with the innovations and the technologies of the day. “ — Col Jason Bartolomei, GBSD
  • “…when you look at our chief of staff’s mandate to accelerate change or lose. The core of that acceleration is speed to learning, and that’s what digital engineering is. This is the reason I think it’s so revolutionary because it’s not go build PowerPoint slides, have a briefing, have a series of action items, and then three months later you get the whole thing back together. It’s you dig in and you get answers right away, or you realize that ‘hey, we need to go back. The analysis isn’t there.’ But it’s the speed of learning that’s amazing.” — Col Nathan “VI DOF” Diller, AFWERX
