In 2012, this annual event was reformatted and renamed the SERC Sponsor Research Review (SSRR) as a one-day, sponsor-focused event held in Washington, DC. This event unites the government, industry, and university systems engineering research community in order to share research progress and discuss the most challenging systems engineering issues facing the Department of Defense (DOD) as well as other federal departments and agencies. Since its inception as a University Affiliated Research Center (UARC), the SERC research strategy has evolved to incorporate four key areas: Enterprise Systems and Systems of Systems, Trusted Systems, Systems Engineering and Management Transformation, and Human Capital Development as well as three cross-cutting missions areas, which we group into Velocity, Security and AI & Autonomy. Please see the SERC Technical Plan for more elaborated details. The SSRR program and sessions focus on the research results that we have achieved in each of these key areas.
