Joseph “Joe” A. Cole

In my current position I am able to ensure that the Department of Defense (DoD), the Defense Science & Technology enterprise, and the broader homeland defense and security (HDS) community is receiving up-to-date scientific and technical information and superior research and development innovations. Over my 30 years of service as a Federal Agent and US military officer (USMC, USN and US Army), I have seen first-hand the need for technologically superior capabilities that not only enhance the mission, but increase war fighter effectiveness and protection. As such, I am honored to be a member of the DoD IAC team and enjoy helping integrate emerging technologies into the larger DoD innovation strategy, mission, and operation(s).
