Modernization of SOF – Prepare Today to Win Tomorrow
Ms. Lisa R. Sanders is the Director of Science and Technology (S&T) and is responsible for all S&T funded activities. She will be joined by her leads for Futures, Strategic Engagement, and Hyper Enabled Operator in a discussion on processes and tools to enable the S&T Directorate to seek out disruptive and innovative concepts, prototypes, and technologies to win tomorrow’s fights. S&T defines disruptive technology as an innovation that significantly alters the way that consumers, industries, or businesses operate. It can supersede an older process, product, or habit. We define a Hyper-Enabled Operator as a warfighter empowered by data analytics at the edge, resulting in cognitive overmatch which enables decision making in complex environments consisting of cross/multi-domain competition.
