How do we address a technology vulnerability gap for a given military aircraft?

DSIAC subject matter experts (SMEs) assisted in addressing a long-standing technology gap related to a given military aircraft vulnerability for certain combat situations. DSIAC leveraged established relationships with additional experts in the field of survivability and lethality as well as innovation institutions to develop a recommended path forward for soliciting and assessing viable, novel, rapid-response solutions to meet the vulnerability gap.
