ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. -- Major General John A. George, commanding general of the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command, known as CCDC, began his new role as commander by visiting each of the eight centers and corporate laboratory.
On Nov. 26th, George visited CCDC's Data & Analysis Center, or DAC. His goal was to better understand the full breadth and depth of the center's capabilities. During the town hall he met with the workforce and leadership then visited experimentation facilities to see efforts in action.
During the town hall, George shared his leadership philosophy and initial impressions of the command.
"This is an exciting time for all of us," he said. "You are the secret to our success and each one of you have something to offer."
George believes the workforce is intrinsically motivated to support the warfighter and that building a culture of trust across teams should be the bedrock of how we operate and how we approach the future, explaining, "Actions speak louder than words. We must build teams that are trusted and that can trust others."
Talent management was another topic that George discussed during the town hall.
"I have been incredibly impressed with the talent at DAC and my job is to make sure we use your talent," continuing with, "Talent management is essential for the success of this organization."
After the Q&A session, George toured experimental facilities where subject matter experts demonstrated capabilities that integrate analysis from concept to fielding, including electronic warfare vulnerability and resiliency, and Soldier-centered performance design impacts.
He expressed that together we will continue to deliver capabilities to our Soldiers that help position our Army to maintain overmatch and build a Multi-Domain capable Army for the future.
The U.S. Army CCDC DAC has a vast array of capabilities, including integrated analysis from concept to fielding, cyber and electronic warfare vulnerability and resiliency, kinetic lethality and vulnerability, authoritative models and data for modernization decisions, Soldier-centered performance design impacts and weaponeering tools for multi-domain operations. As the Army's authoritative source of integrated analytical solutions for the Soldier and FFME, CCDC DAC will ensure the Army decisively defeats any adversary, anytime, anywhere, including support to the modernization priorities.
