Secretary of Defense

SBG provided wide-ranging support services to both the Department of Defense and Inter-Agency networks including program management, policy, legal, operations and technical, and strategy development capabilities. SBG’s work to find unique technical solutions saved the U.S. Government over $100M.
.
SBG also, in many cases, created the mechanisms to accelerate personnel deployments in austere environments and combat zones.  Remote site performance frequently included directed changes in schedule, task scope and approach.  On each occasion, SBG met all requirements on time and on budget.  End users never missed a beat to meet mission objectives.  SBG’s experience, depth and capacity have served to ensure timeliness of all activity.
.
SBG ensured recommend/deployed technologies met all required objectives.  SBG performed on-site inspections, assessments and operational performance evaluations of aviation platforms, systems and unique capabilities in forward deployed locations worldwide.
.
SBG provided executive management level support to the assigned contracting officer. Efforts required sustained interaction with senior U.S. Government officials across the Executive Branch.  Based on task-specific milestones and government comments SBG supported programs far exceeded expectations in both time of delivery/accomplishment and manner of execution, and have been successfully transferred across the Inter-Agency to COCOMs.

SBG Technology Solutions provides executive consulting services to the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Networks and Information Integration (ASD NII) and the Department of Defense Chief Information Office (DOD CIO). As part of SBG’s primary responsibilities, SBG Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) support the government’s Deputy for the Global Information Grid (GIG) and Enterprise-Wide Senior Systems Engineer in developing, deploying and following through on enterprise-wide engineering efforts. SBG has created white papers outlining the strengths and weaknesses of the GIG Outreach plan and Systems Engineering Outreach plan, and provided experienced insight to ensure the approaches are successful. SBG also supports the GIG Enterprise Documentation Framework, an effort to reduce numerous gaps, overlaps and inconsistencies in guidance to program managers building the GIG.
.
Leveraging on our experience with Naval Open Architecture, SBG has also assessed and assisted with developing future options for the Open Technology Demonstration (OTD) effort within ASD NII. The OTD concept involves the transition of open source software into the DOD, development of a distributed enterprise code repository, and collaboration across the DOD on technology acquisition and development. SBG personnel provide the Principal to the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Advanced Systems & Concepts (DUSD AS&C) with guidance on how to best leverage ASD NII personnel and capabilities to maximize returns from the OTD project.
.
Another major effort supported by SBG personnel is the evaluation of the Defense Venture Catalyst Initiative (DeVenCI). “The core vision of the DeVenCI program is to accelerate deployment of innovative and emerging information technology (IT) solutions to the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT) and the Global Information Grid (GIG). DeVenCI will work to increase the awareness of DoD operational and technical challenges to companies outside of the normal DoD supply chain. It will tap into the ideas, breakthrough technologies and strategies of information age innovators by leveraging the venture capitalist community.” SBG provides strategic guidance to the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense (DASD) for Resources to ensure the successful implementation of the DeVenCI business plan.
.
SBG started this effort as a subcontractor to Jorge Scientific Corporation, and now supports the effort as a subcontractor to Booz Allen Hamilton.

SBG supports the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Joint Integrated Air and Missile Defense Organization (JIAMDO) providing collateral security management services. JIAMDO is responsible for planning, coordinating, and overseeing Joint Air and Missile Defense requirements, joint operational concepts, and operational architectures in support of its mission. SBG personnel coordinate, implement, and maintain the JIAMDO security program by providing information, personnel, and physical security.

SBG has been awarded a contract to support the Office of the Deputy Secretary of Defense for Emerging Capability and Prototyping Joint Capability Technology Demonstration (JCTD), to conduct cyber vulnerability assessment (red-teaming).
.
Adversaries of the U.S. constantly try to exploit vulnerabilities in DoD software and systems in an attempt to gather sensitive information. Information assurance and security are integral to ensuring DoD systems and data is protected from unauthorized access, and cyber red-teaming provides a conduit for identifying potential vulnerabilities before they are exploited.
