Abstract:
There is an acquisition management challenge to a program which has a limited market. One approach which can improve competition is the utilization of commercial technology. This utilization helps reduce unit cost and system obsolescence. The Hardened Subminiature Telemetry and Sensor System (HSTSS) has experienced the affects of a limited market and the need to utilize commercial technology. HSTSS plans to use partnering because the expertise is spread across the industry, and technology integration is required to fabricate an instrumentation system that would meet tri-service test requirements. There are many challenges facing the Program Manager; which create high program risk when proper acquisition procedures are not followed. HSTSS is this type of project. This paper will essentially discuss the acquisition strategy as it has evolved as well as the technical strategy. These strategies have been influenced by Government acquisition streamlining , available commercial technology and the programs limited production requirements. This is what the Government’s Project Managers are facing in these times of shrinking budgets and downsizing. The importance of the services working together, and sharing funds and technology to accomplish more with less is discussed in this paper. It is essential that government and industry work together as partners to reach the program’s goals. This paper proposes a program strategy based on our experience as to what is needed to incorporate partnering and commercial technology to successfully complete your program.
