Army Lt. Gen. Alan Lynn – DISA Forecast to Industry 2017
Good. Morning. Are. You all today. Hey. Thank you all for coming this is a great day I will, tell you that we've got, about. 800, people here, we. Got about 900, people online and. We've got about another 300 that, we're waiting. So. We, really, appreciate this this much attendance. For. A number of reasons one, is because. We. Can't do our business, without, industry. Flat. Flat. Said we can't do what, we do, without. Industry. We. Need you. At. The association, of the United States Army Secretary mattis. Said. That. Open communications. With partner agencies and, industry, is important. And. That's a core business for DISA and, the. Joint force headquarters doden, now we've spared no expense today we've got all the senior leaders and. DISA they're going to be here today could you go the next slide. Go. Okay. So. We've got mr. Tony Munter Morano he's the executive, Deputy Director he's. Our top civilian. We've, got Alfred Rivera the department in development. And business center. Director. We've. Got mr. Douglas Packard procurement. Services. Executive, and. We've got mr. Jesse showers infrastructure. Director executive, Operations. Center now. Just to tell you a little bit about. What. I do next slide. So. If you can check these slides out you'll see kind of two pieces, I've, got essentially, two jobs, both. Completely. Different, the first one is. DISA. And you see the aircraft. There. So. The aircraft's, representing, us building. Okay, so that's the build function. That's. Boeing, so. We're building cyber. Space. So. The cyber domain, land sea and air. Those. Are all domains but, cyber is also a domain, DISA. Builds. The. Cyber domain for. DoD and interconnects. All the service, enclaves. Of that. So. In force headquarters, dodin are, the. Maneuver forces, they're. The pilots, they, actually fly in the domain and, they. Work whenever. The. Security, piece I. Was. Wondering how far I could go with that the. Security, piece right here that. We, build in. Probably. Close. To 95%. Of the attacks that we have and we have literally. A Bayon attacks a month. We. Defend most of that with, security apparatus, so, real-time, security, is happening, but. When people have to get involved, that's. Joint force headquarters don't, they. Actually are the maneuver forces of maneuver. Inside the domain to. Really take out the. Enemy. Next. Slide okay. So. Innovation. Is. What. We're after. So. Innovation. Equals, opportunity, with, technology. Software-defined. Networks. It's. Kind of in. Industry, a lot of people are running towards this for. Cost. Savings so. Software-defined, networks, are instead. Of having hardware. The. Hardware apparatus. Is. Taken. The. Software, out and, building. A huge. Network, just. With software. Why. Is that important. Well. Obviously the, hardware, costs a lot of money so. There's there's some reduction, in cost there but more importantly, it's, easier to defend a network if you can build multiple. Equal. Networks. That are identical, in, a row and. Then, if you have an attack. On one of the networks. You. Can fold that network and move, your, users, over to the next network. What. We're trying to get to is not. Just, moving, at one time but. Moving it constantly, so, you're hopping. Over networks. Much. Like frequency. Hopping radios. That's. What we're trying to get to so. The ability to spin up these, environments, quickly and, then. Move across. Them is going, to provide the kind of security that we want because, then you can't have a persistent attack, if the, network isn't persistent, if it's, constantly, moving so. That's an opportunity for industry. To help us. Virtual. Data centers, so we have we've, developed, virtual data centers, so they're all virtualized. The. Neat thing about that is we can spin up a capability whenever, we need it.
And, Why that's really, helpful, to us is actually. The combination of software-defined. Networks. Virtual. Data centers, in this multinational. Information. Sharing capability. So. We got a 15, star note from the COCOMs, of just. About a two years ago, where. They were saying, we do, not fight, and this is true we. Do not fight. Our. Nation's Wars by ourselves we. Always have a coalition partner. And. We've got a lot of bilateral, networks, out there like Centrex. And. We, think we have an opportunity combining. All these three requirements together, to. Provide an all new type of. International. Network. For whoever, comes to the fight one. Of the big issues always was each. Nation wants to have total control of, their, network, well. With software-defined networking, they have that. Now they can actually hold, on to control. Their. Portion of the network and then we connect those networks, with this, larger, network look at it as a kind, of a universal bus, that. Everybody connects into and. Now whatever, we, go wherever we fight whatever. Coalition, partner shows up we'll be able to connect them through the. Virtual data center, using software-defined, networks, and connect. All the different forces to. Do constant. Sharing with whatever, nation shows. Up for the fight and they. Can decide what, they want to share or what they don't want to share and that's. What we're looking for and we could use the industry's help on that. Mobility. So. Mobility, as you, know is something we've been working on for a while now we've. Got secure. Mobile phones there commercial, mobile, phones we've. Got, unclassified. With, credentials. Built into the device we've. Got secret. Commercial. Devices and now. We have top-secret commercial. Devices so. We have the ability to use. All the, spectrum, of the space, that we use in warfighting. So. So. What's missing. What. We'd like to get to is. A. Universal. Transport, in. Other words think. Of a hotspot that. Doesn't. Matter if it's cellular. That's available or, tactical. We. Want to be able to connect. Into whatever is available so. If we had this Universal, hotspot, we. Think that we, would have incredible. Edge, some. Of that technology already exists, out there but. We haven't pulled it all together and, I think it's a space where industry could help us, another. Space of interest, and, this is all technology. That exists today is life. I so. Light fidelity. Think. Of you'll, know what it you you all seem the new LEDs are coming out everywhere right and. They last forever and you thinking man this is great and never have to replace the light bulb again, with. That same technology, connected. Up with. Pppoe. So, power. On Ethernet. You, can actually run a. Network. Using. LEDs, so imagine the LEDs turning, off and on zeros. And ones so fast, you. Can't see it with a naked eye. But. It's. Still transmitting, the zeros and ones and then, you have a sensitive pad underneath it that's, catching, that so we've done it in the lab and we've got nine gig to the desktop nine. Gig. To, the desktop, so. Obviously. That has a lot of potential, for military I think, of ships. At sea now. Wherever the lights in there you've got your, network right. But. It, doesn't emanate out so unlike Wi-Fi, it. Doesn't emanate out so it stays in the ship so now the ship's quiet. Think. Of the B C T's where, they put up their tents or, they put up their vans, you. Don't have to run all that wire and do all that stuff because it's already part of the system, and. Then you connect into it and. You're ready to go again. No, emanations, coming out of that tent a, different. Way of doing things but we think it's got a lot of potential I think there's two companies that, are, that are building that kind of equipment right now one that thinks in the UK and the others in the US but. Another area where I think there's a strong potential for the military, a. Cloud. Presence, obviously we're going to the cloud I think, that's important. There's. A lot of reasons for that but it but we're gonna need industries, held one. Of the ways that, obviously, competing, for, for. Cloud is part, of that but another important, part is Apps rationalization. Okay, so. Deciding. And helping helping, the department really take a look at the applications. That we have in there and deciding, what's. Not going to come to the cloud, that. We would have to rebuild, totally, if we, need that application. What. Takes, minor modifications. That. We can just, tweak. It a little bit and bring it into the cloud and what's cloud ready and. Help bring that in, that's. Going to be important thing for us we literally have thousands, of applications out there and, we need industries helped to help us maneuver. Those back into the cloud. Obviously. Mobile-ready apps that's all part of that, and.
Then There's large. Data analytics, or big data analytics so. We have a massive, infrastructure. So, we're a we're. A twenty four billion dollar network out there there's. A lot of moving parts for. Us to see ourselves we, use large data analytics, now but they're they're. Not as good as I think they could be so, we could use industry's help and giving us some of those analytic. Capabilities. To put on our analytic, cloud. But. I think that's, just a starting point because you, know we want to see our networks but. Using those same capabilities. We could take a look at ourselves on, a business platform, industry. Is really good at this cost, accounting, right you, know how much, everything costs and all the puts and takes to it having, that large data analytic cloud to actually look at every part of the department, I think could. Be really powerful next. Slide. All. Right. So. Mill, cloud to dos has, been awarded it's going to come live january. Settie. Contract, is a 7.5, billion dollar contract, over ten years that, those, really, our techies, we're looking really high tech folks. Then. There's encore3. So. I want to spend a little bit of time with encore3. So. We did something a little bit different with encore3. Normally. What. We've got is the best value trade-off. Most, of our task orders our best value trade-off but. It dawned on us that. For. For, this contract, we wanted to go LptA. And. I know a lot of people think LptA is a bad word a bad. Couple of letters I guess. But. Actually we think it's part of the really, game-changer for innovation. In, contracting. Because. What we've done is we've. Done LptA to select. The. Company. At. The task order level we. Will still be doing, best. Value trade-off. So. Let's. Look at it this way what we've done is we've. Created a fishing license. Right. So. The company has a fishing license, to now go after the task order. Where. Its best value, or LptA. But. Mostly best value, why. Do I think that's a, good thing, so. Here here's some stats for you so. In 2006. Under encore, -. We. Received 16. Proposals. For, the full, and open suite. So. This time we. Received. 72. Proposals. So. I mean that kind of speaks to me at least the debts that we're on the right track. What. Else did I want to tell you about that I. Think. I'll leave it at that. Small. Business, so. We're doing a lot of work with small business as well. Alright. This. Is Sharon, Jones she's, in charge of small business she's looking give me that look so I won't steal all her thunder but. I will tell you that in, 2017. This, awarded. 1.7. Billion in prime. Contracts, to small business, and, law it was due to Sharon Jones could you give her a round of applause. Alright. Innovation. So we talk a little bit more about innovation, so we. Really would like to partner with industry we really do and we are, we're. Looking for more opportunities to do that and I'll. Talk about just one of the things we've been working on recently so this is uh, this. Is continuous, multi-factor, authentication, or. Assured, identity. As. You as, you, think about the. Internet and. The Internet of Things one, of the big issues is you can, be anonymous and write on the network right, and so.
Your Identity is really, kind of weak right now in the network and that's why people are able to take your, identity because, it's relatively. Easy you've. Used some password somewhere right. And. The other thing that's important, I think as, we as we look to industry we understand, you need to make money right. So. What, if we have a win-win or we're. Building something that you can not only use on the military, side but. You can also use, it, on the commercial, side so. We think we're in that neat spot now in. This, continuous. Multi-factor, authentication. This. Innovation, that we're working as part. Of our mobile devices so, I told you mobility is going to be key to the future and that, we are working really hard towards mobility but, that. Other piece we're working on is the identity piece so. Assured. Identity, making sure you are who you say you are. Next. Slide. Okay. So. Some of the things we're building into this identity, process that will be on your your. Phone your, cellular phone, facial. Recognition voice. Recognition, you've. Seen them do fingerprint already right it's, not it's not unusual, but this is where we're headed your, gait the, way you walk is actually as individual, as a fingerprint. Retinal. Iris scanning is available. But. Also patterns, of life so the way you travel, your travel pattern from your home to, office you normally, go the same place at home and. You to your office. Anybody. Use waves here. Yeah. It. Also knows how, fast you're going between home. And office so if your speeder. It. Knows that too it's not turning you in but at least it knows that it knows that, information. So your pattern of life is also. Important. The. Way you hold your device you. Know if you the. Device handling, the way you hold it actually is different, your. Speech, recognition, your speech pattern, is different. And then. There's keystroke cadence when. You're actually the way you do your keystrokes on your device is, also an identity, match. So. We, wanted to put together something, where all the technology, that we just talked about exist. In one place and supports. The warfighter because we are a Combat Support Agency we're, here to support the warfighter, so. With that I'd like to show you kind. Of assured identity, with. Our. Software-defined, life.i. And. A. Network. Capability, with that hotspot we talked about earlier can, you go ahead and roll. This, is Newman. Yeah. I'm just going to stop for coffee. Yeah. That sounds great I'll transfer phone, look. Look. But, gopher. Newman. Yes, sounds good. Okay. Yeah. Hey, sir I've got some information for your mission today they, received Intel. Suggests, that we have some potential enemy activity in the area I have. Some live UAV feets ready to send over when you're ready. Object. We. Over. Sir, Intel, suggests you have unidentified object. Up ahead 300, meters on the Left recommend, you proceed with caution my. Device is picking, up something ahead switching. To a our goggles now I. Need. U AV support ASAP. Receiving, teeth. Sending, down a mountain. Registers. I received your outlook, develop. A this time that it is naive e recommended. Sending in beauty. Come, on great. Save team thanks for covering our six. Can. I get a whole. So. That all seems like it's science fiction but actually every piece of that exists, somewhere, today and, we're trying to pull that together we need industries help. Next. Slide. Continue. Okay. So. Let's, let's talk one. Of the things I've learned as I've traveled around is. We. Don't talk enough with industry, we. We, keep your secrets. And. There's. A lot of things that are going on out in industry and, you, may be missing that one piece that we have. There's. A lot of innovation that's happening in DoD because it has to, for. Those that think there's not they. Just don't understand the. Scope of the business that we're in we're, constantly innovating. Things. Like the internet they came from DoD there's a lot of stuff that you can rely on day-to-day that. Came from DoD. So. So talk to us. Help. Us help you because it'll ultimately help us. I think, partnerships, are going to be a key to our success. An. Innovation. Innovation. Innovation, I, mean. We have research and development. Agreements that we can sign as well if there's any concern. But. We're. Missing some partners I'm sure they, could help us so. We keep looking for, you. I'd, like to thank everybody that actually, pulled all this together I'd really like to thank the team, that worked that video this weekend can you all give them one more round of applause. I'd. Like to thank you all for coming and I'd like to thank all those online for, hanging. With us I'd. Like to thank all that have served I see a number of people that served in the military. And. Those that have served in. Suits. And. Also those who served as contractors.
Because Again we couldn't do what we do without you.
