16 August 1999 Summary of DoD display acquisition workshops
Author Affiliations +
Two industry-government workshops on the topic of improving DoD display acquisition convened at SPIE AeroSense '99 on the evenings of April 6th and 7th. The discussions focussed primarily on three issue areas; (1) Requirements, standardization, and commonality; (2) life cycle cost; and (3) commercial technology and practices. Suggestions coming out of these discussions included the following: Developing families of specifications; creating more economic incentives for commonality; not interfering with industry competition; improving DoD's information base; bringing greater visibility to the LCC implications of display choices; and changing DoD behavior to obtain greater access to commercial suppliers.
