This article describes Department of Defense (DoD) Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC) efforts leading to and supporting the DoD Digital Engineering (DE) initiative. Topics include the SERC’s initial collaboration with Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) in 2013 as well as ongoing SERC DE research. The article also identifies future research needed to continue to develop the DE ecosystem for system of systems acquisition, which will require rapidly changing mission strategies to address ever-evolving threats.
