Future Combat Systems Looking for a Deputy CIO
The US Army’s $150-300 billion Future Combat Systems program has many dimensions, from UAVs to missiles to land vehicles. One of the most important dimensions, however, is its network and IT elements.
DefenseTech notes that FCS lead systems integrator SAIC is advertising for a Future Combat Systems Deputy CIO. “Minimum of 15 years experience in both classified and unclassified enterprise information management” required, along with “a minimum of 8 years of relevant and recent project management office (PMO) experience under a U.S. Government contract.”
The Monster.com posting adds that “proficiency with Microsoft products and common office software applications” is another requirement. Given Microsoft’s security record and the importance of the network element to FCS’ combat capabilities, we hope they mean Word, Excel, Power Point, and Visio.
