Report: Upgrades Required for Army Networking Gear

Defense News reports that “the US Army is looking for connections, but it got little love from the Pentagon’s top test and evaluation agency over its radio and networking gear, which faulted their glitches in its annual report released Tuesday.”  

“The report, from Michael Gilmore, Director, Operational Test and Evaluation (DOT&E), indicates that one of the Army’s main acquisition priorities, while showing signs of improvement, is not ready for prime time. The report covers assessments over the last year, providing snapshots of the Army network modernization effort’s developmental and technical snafus.”  

“Such glitches won’t necessarily doom a program. Ultimately, the Army and Office of the Secretary of Defense will have to ask, ‘does the program have value and benefit for soldiers and commanders,’ said retired Lt. Gen. William Phillips, the former military deputy to the Army’s acquisition executive.”
