Transforming the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command, with thanks to MIT

For the past three years, the Department of Defense?s Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) organization has committed to a different kind of mission than any it has pursued before ? to transform their engineering acquisition capabilities to a model-based design. Their goal is to shorten the timeline from beginning to delivery without lacking quality or precision.

Since early in 2017, an essential part of implementing that transformation has been NAVAIR?s participation in the MIT program, ?Architecture and Systems Engineering: Models and Methods to Manage Complex Systems,? a four-course online course on model-based systems engineering.
