About Our Team:
The Advanced Concepts department, 5491, develops an understanding of potential future warfighter technology needs through simulation and analysis of mission and engagement vignettes. This allows for development of a deep understanding of potential gaps in warfighter capabilities and helps to drive proposals, technology roadmaps, as well as requirements for future systems. The department also performs R&D to design and analyze multi-disciplinary aerospace concepts to find solutions to warfighter capability gaps. The capabilities draw upon both the offensive and defensive technology expertise at the laboratory. The department both utilizes existing tools and develops new tools for creating a robust scrimmaging capability. The department seeks broad integration with warfighters and technology providers to the government.
