Adarryl Roberts, program executive officer at the Defense Logistics Agency, and Martina Miles Johnson, Research and Development Manufacturing Technology Integrator at DLA, discuss how they’re looking to utilize new capabilities, and the agency’s upcoming industry day.

The Defense Logistics Agency is seeking new ways to access emerging capabilities in the defense space. Adarryl Roberts, program executive officer at the Defense Logistics Agency says that they’re pursuing an aggressive timeline for fielding new technology.

 

“For us, it’s as quickly as we get it to where it’s effective and doesn’t put the warfighter or business process at risk. Ideally, from a government perspective, what you normally hear is that it takes a long time for government to deploy. We’re trying to fight that paradigm,” Roberts told Government Matters. “Most of our projects we focus on 12 to 24 month increments where we not only come up with the concept, but we’ve proven [it] and are ready to deploy. Full deployment takes us a while because the Department of Defense is a large agency. But we’re really looking to start implementation within a two-year time frame.”

 

Martina Miles Johnson, Research and Development Manufacturing Technology Integrator at DLA, says their upcoming industry day is the best place for technology providers to interact with the agency.

“We’re actually looking for all of our partners to participate to understand the various 12 programs that we have that are under manufacturing technology as well as logistics,” Johnson said. “They’ll have an opportunity to engage with all of our program managers… and they’ll have an opportunity to interact with some of our leadership.”
