Industry Day Brief: Scout Experimentation

The Industry Day Brief for the Scout Experimentation held on November 22, 2021, by the Joint Interagency Task Force-South (JIATF-S) focused on addressing warfighter operational problems through innovative technologies and techniques. The Chief of Naval Research (CNR) outlined a vision emphasizing problem-driven approaches, warfighter partnerships, and teamwork to deliver faster decision points.

The Scout Experimentation aims to leverage Naval Research and Development Establishment (NRDE) resources, execute discovery events, and provide deeper analysis of warfighter capabilities for transition planning.

The JIATF-S mission statement highlights the task force's role in targeting illicit drug trafficking in air and maritime domains, emphasizing partnerships, threat mitigation, and team building. The Scout Experimentation campaign identified operational problems such as data synthesis enhancement, hunting without Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA), MPA surface asset utilization, and rapid distributed logistics.

The campaign is structured into two phases involving exploration, experimentation exercises, and prototyping projects leading to fleet experiments or rapid fielding. The proposal format includes quad charts, white papers detailing operational relevance and technical parameters, and a timeline for submission deadlines.
