Combat Systems Symposium

“Digital engineering approaches and methods are a key enabler to delivery of affordable capability to the warfighter with speed and lethality. The Department of the Navy has proactively embraced digital engineering and believes it is the way we must execute business in the 21st century.” Mr. William Bray, DASN (RDT&E)


In June 2018, the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering (USD (R&E)) released a Digital Engineering Strategy built on five foundational elements necessary for a Digital Engineering Ecosystem to thrive:


  • Formalize the development, integration, and use of models to inform enterprise and program decision making
  • Provide an enduring, authoritative source of truth
  • Incorporate technological innovation to improve the engineering practice
  • Establish a supporting infrastructure and environment to perform activities, collaborate, and communicate across stakeholders
  • Transform the culture and workforce to adopt and support digital engineering across the life cycle

Secretary Geurts (ASN (RDA)) lists “deliver and sustain lethal capacity” as one of his top priorities. To remain ahead of the demands for new and upgraded weapon systems, the Navy must continually scrutinize its approach to acquisition and systems engineering, By providing a more agile and responsive development environment, model based system engineering and digital engineering support engineering excellence and provides a foundation to fight and win the wars of the future.


The 2019 ASNE Combat Systems Symposium will look into how model based and digital engineering are providing avenues for more efficient and effective Combat System engineering and delivery of agile systems to meet the threats today and in the future. How we sustain and modernize the combat system will also be addressed to include the challenges and obstacles in our way to maintain maritime superiority.
