Strategic Capabilities Office (SCO)

Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research & Engineering

The SCO was established by the former SECDEF in order to rapidly develop a portfolio of capabilities to counter near-peer adversaries and improve the U.S. posture in engaging future threats. MTSI was selected by senior OUSD leadership to provide highly specialized acquisition, engineering, and RDT&E support for the planning and analysis of capabilities to counter current and emerging threats. Technical requirements include conceptualizing, initiating, and overseeing RDT&E capability studies to overcome the current and anticipated Anti-Access Area-Denial (A2AD) environment.
