Cask employs Science and Technology professionals with an understanding of the procedures and mechanisms that can be used to develop and transition new technologies into the DoD’s warfighting systems.
Science and technology play an important role in the systems acquisition life cycle. Our staff focuses on the processes, techniques, policies and best practices that will be employed to ensure we are investing in appropriate technologies and that those technologies are refined and matured to be ready for use in a timely fashion to provide our war-fighters with the technological edge needed to accomplish their mission.
Our Coopers apply critical skills in areas such as technology evaluation, budgeting, schedule management, contracting strategies, transition agreements, risk/opportunity management, intellectual property, and technology verification. They apply these skills in evaluating a set of technologies as they progress from applied research to the point of transition to a program of record.
Our senior staff conduct strategic planning, develop technology road-maps, and conduct technology portfolio development prioritization and evaluation. We make sound recommendations on which technologies to pursue consistent with organizational core functions, customer requirements and technology opportunities.
