AAF:  Urgent Capability Pathway 3.10.20

This is DAU’s webcast of their Rapid Deployment Training (RDT) for the Adaptive Acquisition Framework’s Urgent Capability Acquisition pathway.  The video runs approximately 1.5 hours and details the new pathway, changes since the previous policy publication, and Q&A with DAU professors and the Joint Rapid Acquisition Cell (JRAC)’s Executive Director.  Backup slides include more updates to policy but entire briefing hits the highlights.
