The 'Digital Readiness' webcast series is a collaboration between the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) and the System Engineering Research Center (SERC). Each webcast was headlined by various SERC researchers throughout our network of collaborators. This webcast was the the kick off to the entire 9-part webcast series, which were centered around the following three themes:
- DIGITAL ENGINEERING
