Mitchell Institute Update

In a rare public appearance Mr. Randall Walden from the AF Rapid Capabilities office spoke at the monthly Mitchell Hour.  The Air Force relies on the Rapid Capabilities Office (RCO) to streamline procurement for pressing technological needs for programs like the B-21 and smaller tailored acquisition efforts like the X-37 Orbital Test Vehicle.  The ability to accelerate the acquisition of new systems is critically important given the pace of innovation and the associated requirements development. Mr. Walden offered his thoughts on the potential implications the office's efforts may have on the broader acquisition process.
