A

Statement of Task

A planning committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will organize and conduct a 3-day workshop that brings together experts and key stakeholders from academia, government, industry, and the U.S. Army. The workshop will explore how the U.S. Army can improve its strategic medical infrastructure planning. The Army requires fidelity, consistency, and predictability in processes for planning and managing research, development, test, and evaluation (RDT&E) resources for medical infrastructure across all appropriation sources to effectively develop, deliver, and respond to the military medical capability needs. Invited presentations and discussions will be designed to:

  • Examine the roles, responsibilities, and coordinating mechanisms among the major stakeholders responsible for battlefield medicine readiness and care including:
    1. Investigating Army capability requirements related to a Multi-Domain Operating (MDO) environment in 2035.
    2. Discussing how other components can best complement the Army’s disproportionate share of battlefield medicine preparedness.
    3. Reviewing collaborative funding agreements (or lack of) and barriers to cooperation.

  • Examine case studies of comparably complex enterprise solutions across industry and academia including:
    1. Reviewing and examining what industry and academic models (or aspects of models) could be applied to Army infrastructure planning.
    2. Exploring gaps and seams in current Army R&D laboratory infrastructure models.
  • Examine the opportunities to link ends, ways, and means to improve enterprise efficiencies including:
    1. Describing enterprise framework components, and
    2. Discussing strategic goals, drivers, and current Army medical research and development enterprise gaps.

The planning committee will develop the agenda for the workshop, select and invite speakers and discussants, and moderate the discussions. A proceedings of the presentations and discussions at the workshop will be prepared by a designated rapporteur in accordance with institutional guidelines.

At the request of the U.S. Army, the Board on Army Research and Development of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine conducted a 3-day workshop to explore how the Army can improve its strategic medical infrastructure planning with a view to 2035. The workshop, held July 14-16, 2020, brought together experts and key stakeholders from academia, industry, and government. The Army requires fidelity, consistency, and predictability in planning and managing research, development, test, and evaluation resources for medical infrastructure across all appropriation sources to effectively develop, deliver, and respond to military medical capability needs. In response to the Army's requirement, the workshop was designed to address the components of a sustainable, reinforcing enterprise framework (organizational and fiscal). Presentations and discussions examined roles, responsibilities, and coordinating mechanisms among major stakeholders of battlefield medicine; case studies of comparably complex non-government enterprise solutions; and opportunities to link ends, ways, and means for improvements. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussion of the workshop.
