This Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC) 2019-2023 Technical Plan aligns the SERC Vision and Research Strategy with the Sponsor’s Core funding priorities. It describes the SERC Vision, the Sponsor’s needs, and the SERC’s response to these needs. This is reflected by three mission areas which are supported by four Research Areas: Enterprises and Systems of Systems (ESOS), Trusted Systems (TS), Systems Engineering and Systems Management Transformation (SEMT) and Human Capital Development (HCD). A Vision statement is presented for each of these four Research Areas, along with a strategy to address it. Eleven research programs have been identified to support this strategy. Research projects are then presented which support each of these programs, consisting of existing and anticipated future projects.
RESEARCH TRANSITION REPORT 2018
Title: SERC Research Transition Report 2018 “Transitioning research into practice – crossing boundaries through integrative collaboration”
Published: November 8, 2018
All research within the SERC is conducted with an objective of having a significant positive impact on the national security of the United States. Thus, it is critical that SERC research is transitioned into practice. The impact of the SERC continues to grow through our collaboration with a number of FFRDCs, National Laboratories, and DoD Industry. To support the SERC transition goals, this report highlights research tasks completed in the government fiscal year 2018 (GFY2018), from 1 October 2017-30 September 2018. SERC researchers have published more than 400 technical papers and reports over the past ten years. Research findings have transitioned into numerous courses across the SERC universities and beyond. We encourage organizations to review the research tasks highlighted in this report, and to contact us if we can assist in the necessary discussion and engagement to support the transition of relevant research into practice.
