Aegis: Strategies for the Future
The Aegis Weapon and Combat Systems have demonstrated their designed ability to evolve in response to the changing threats to peace. Emerging threats require the Navy to continually improve performance associated with the Aegis cornerstones - assessing & implementing new technologies, and integrating them into the Multi-Warfare ACS. Understand Navy's drastic changes in program priorities for combat and how BMD policy of Phased Adaptive Approach has affected Aegis. Look at how affordability aided by open architecture and process efficiencies drive acquisition reform. Understand what the future of Aegis may hold to remain the "enduring shield" of the fleet. Consider the implications of ACS performance improvements with modifications to sensors, command and control, and weapon systems necessary to achieve future missions.

    Topics Include:
  • Threat Uncertainty Driving Aegis Future
  • Aegis Modernization, International and Continuation
  • Phased Adaptive Approach and Aegis Ashore
  • Countering Emerging Threat Capability
