CERDEC-021.110/21/04 BRAC Update / Challenges 15 March 2007 Gary P. Martin Director, CERDEC
CERDEC-021.210/21/04 A Few Realities About BRAC Its in Law – Congress has never overturned a BRAC decision. Significant Personnel Losses will occur during relocation to APG. Successful transfer of mission requires action NOW. Need comprehensive plan to ensure technical skills are retained / replaced in a timely manner. Although we don’t like the decision, we have an opportunity to create a new organization for the future.
CERDEC-021.310/21/04 Personnel StrengthHiring Statistics With Degrees: 88% Matrix Support: 30% Average Age: 44.7 yrs CERDEC-HQ-TracyAnania-Budget-090105.01.ppt CERDEC – Ft. Monmouth Civilians Military 1632 14 FY05 FY04 FY03 142 137 142 Minority Profile White 70% Asian Pacific 16% Black 7% Hispanic 4% Other 3% Native American 0%
CERDEC-021.510/21/04 Age Demographics (Non-Supervisory) 53% of Workforce Eligible to Retire
CERDEC-021.610/21/04 Age Demographics (Supervisory) 63% of Workforce Eligible to Retire
CERDEC-021.710/21/04 Overarching Challenges Personnel Challenges -Attrition starting to occur but only slightly higher than normal rate -Some Interns hired this year won’t be productive as domain SME until year of the move (2010) »Typical starting grade GS-7 with target grade of GS-12 (30 Months) »3-5 years of specialty training (formal and OTJ) to become a journeyman in particular domain (e.g. radar, SIGINT, engineer) »Computer Scientist and Computer Engineering market very competitive. Long term trends ? -Significant hiring activities required at time of move »Retirement eligibility and workforce survey results suggest more than 60% of current staff will need to be replaced per BRAC moves. »Engineering Support and Services Contractors will vie for same talent driving demand
CERDEC-021.810/21/04 Examples of Possible Business Model Contributors and Contributions Lucent, Telcordia, Cisco, Bell Labs, Akamai Microsoft, INTEL, IBM NG, BAE, Raytheon, ITT (Inherently Non-Commercial) Systems and Services Integration Verizon, Vonage, Ericsson, Comcast Communications Network Command and Control ISR Northrop, USAF War Fighter Integration, Navy CEC, Navy C4ISR CERDEC Core Missions System of Systems Architecture Systems Engineering and Experimentation Research and Development (Technology Development) Engineering Support (Project Leadership and Sustainment Engineering) System and System of Systems Integration and Experimentation Sensing TransportingProcessingPresenting

CERDEC-021.1010/21/04 What Have We Heard So Far? C4ISR systems are inherently software intensive. Must focus on the software architects early in the development process. Technology Community must feed Requirements Community in the Requirements Definition phase. Critically important in C4ISR due to pace of technology development -Modeling and Simulation -Prototyping -Field Experimentation Links to commercial industry critically important. Must continue and expand. -Influence Standards bodies early on. Robust Systems Engineering must feed entire Acquisition Process. (Science and Technology through Sustainment)
CERDEC-021.1110/21/04 Skills Assessment Acoustic Engineers Analog Devices Engineers Discrete Component Engineers Radar Engineers Satellite Engineers Communication Engineers Networking Engineers Chemical Engineers (Battery, Fuel Cells) Sustainment Engineers (Reliability, Maintainability, Producibility) Project Leaders Technicians Intel Specialists Systems Engineers Radar Engineers Satellite Engineers Communication Engineers Networking Engineers Chemical Engineers Sustainment Engineers Project Leaders Technicians Intel Specialists Systems Engineers S/W Architects Test Engineers Industrial Engineers IA Architects &Engineers System Engineers Skill not required in future New/Additional Skills required in future Skills that must be retained
CERDEC-021.1210/21/04 Action Plans S/W Architects -Working with CMU Test Engineers -Growing capability at DTC with C4ISR domain knowledge -C4ISR OTM pilot program Industrial Engineers -Increasing focus on Sustainment engineering (quality, reliability, maintenance, production) -Working to increase capability while addressing rate of technology evolution in our domain -Developing in-house training programs (leveraging AMSAA, ALLC, and others) IA Architects &Engineers -Targeted accredited university programs for degreed IA specialists (BS and MS) System Engineers -26 personnel on hand performing Systems of Systems functions. Most SE experienced gained via OJT. -Organizational assessment has identified need for 67 Systems Engineers throughout organizational structure. -Developing plan for identification and formal training of cadre of staff to fill positions
CERDEC-021.1410/21/04 10 Year Recruiting Map (Bachelor of Sciences) 76% from NJ, NY, PA 8.6% from DE, MD, VA
CERDEC-021.1510/21/04 Efforts to Assess / Reshape Skills Projection of future technology trends to assess impacts on Required Skills Assessment of Universities that have programs well suited to meet entry level requirements to help focus recruitment efforts Initial contact with MD area universities to convey personnel / skills needs. Critical look at Rebuilding Diversity of staff (key challenge) -Partner / leverage Good work of ARL in HBCU/MI relationships -Working with Economic Council of Harford County. Working with FEI to assess leader development training needs.

CERDEC-021.2510/21/04 Way Forward We have developed Courses of Action which consider using available / existing facilities and Leasing Space. Completed first cut assessment of critical skills assessment to guide hiring plan. Developing Communication plan to keep workforce appraised of actions / status. -CE LCMC BRAC update Town Hall meetings. -CERDEC quarterly all hands meetings Objective is to move as many as 500 FTE positions to APG by 2010. Working to get 50 folks at APG in FY07. First employee PCS’d in Jan 07.
