The purpose of the International Council On Systems Engineering (INCOSE) Defense Systems Working Group (DSWG, originally the Aerospace and Defense (A&D) Working Group) is to create an international forum for defense acquirers and providers that provides a "neutral" body that works on issues that impact specifying, developing and acquiring defense systems and services and to promote the development of systems engineering best practices in a manner that recognizes the special issues faced by the Defense Systems Engineering (SE) practitioners and managers in the changing global market for defense related systems.
The Defense Systems WG is to become a conduit for networking, establishing a Web presence, and creating and exchanging explicit and tacit best practice SE knowledge for the defense systems community.
The DSWG will accomplish its purpose through the shared understanding and advancement of systems engineering knowledge
and products in areas that are of interest to the Defense community. The DSWG will act much like the other existing WGs by coordinating with INCOSE Technical Committees in the selection, evaluation and solution of the initiatives to be addressed by
The objectives include improving the people, processes, and resources used in addressing systems challenges.
The DSWG is a volunteer group of INCOSE members that includes representatives from Federal
and non-Federal international government agencies, small and large businesses in various government and commercial industries,
and systems engineering university programs throughout the world. Pariticpation in the DSWG will enhance the skills and expertise
of its members.
SKILLS AND EXPERTISE ENHANCEMENT
The challenge to increase interest in engineering and science is complex and involves many facets of human activity and expertise including the following:
