DEVCOM

U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command

The U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command, known as DEVCOM, is the Army's technology leader and largest technology developer. DEVCOM ensures the dominance of Army capabilities by creating, integrating and delivering technology-enabled solutions to our Soldiers. The command provides the Army with an organic research and development capability. More than 13,700 Soldiers, civilian employees and direct contractors form this world-class team. As part of that team, there are more than 10,000 engineers and scientists, many of whom are the Army's leading experts in their fields. The fundamental characteristic of the DEVCOM workforce is the focus on the Soldier. DEVCOM is a major subordinate command of the U.S. Army Futures Command, which assesses and integrates the future operational environment, emerging threats, and technologies to develop and deliver concepts, requirements, future force designs and the delivery of modernization solutions. The command comprises eight major competency areas, including the: DEVCOM Armaments Center DEVCOM Army Research Laboratory DEVCOM Aviation & Missile Center DEVCOM Chemical Biological Center DEVCOM C5ISR Center DEVCOM Data & Analysis Center DEVCOM Ground Vehicle Systems Center DEVCOM Soldier Center DEVCOM -Americas DEVCOM -Atlantic DEVCOM -Pacific DEVCOM also has three regionally aligned international elements, the DEVCOM-Americas, -Atlantic and -Pacific centers. The command focuses on fundamental scientific research, technology development, engineering and analysis to support the Army's six modernization priorities: Long-Range Precision Fires; Next-Generation Combat Vehicle; Future Vertical Lift; Network; Air & Missile Defense; and Soldier Lethality. Key tenets of the DEVCOM mission are speed of delivery and integrating technology into existing weapon systems. Formerly known as the U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM), DEVCOM joined AFC on Feb. 3, 2019, and marks the next step in the Army's effort to transform its approach to modernize critical core capabilities that will give Soldiers and allies a decisive edge in battle. As the modernization strategy focuses on delivering capabilities to support Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) by 2028, DEVCOM will maintain a balance between scientific research to support MDO and technology that may not be developed until 2050 or beyond.

DEVCOM Future of Work Concept

Click here to download the full Future of Work concept The U.S. Army’s largest technology developer recently committed to pursuing an innovative future of work approach with the release of a concept paper to its workforce of over 25,000 civilians, soldiers, and contractors. The Combat Capabilities Development Command, known as DEVCOM, shapes Army capabilities for the future and is looking to remain competitive in the global competition for talent as it executes its research, development, engineering and analysis mission to deliver next-generation capabilities faster than ever before. DEVCOM’s new future of work concept embraces remote work, flexible work schedules and innovative hiring practices. Thousands of DEVCOM employees already collaborate across the globe daily under the strategic guidance of the Army Futures Command, leveraging cutting-edge technologies like synthetic biology, autonomy, robotics, and artificial intelligence to empower the American Warfighter. How that team operates needs to change for the command to keep the Army ready for future challenges, according to the person spearheading the concept, Deputy to the Commanding General, Mr. John Willison. “Our command must embrace a future of work that is different from the past in order to maximize the impact our team can have on modernizing the Army and supporting national security. This concept builds off of momentum and best practices learned from leading our way through the COVID-19 pandemic, balancing the priorities of executing of our mission and taking care of our workforce. The published paper outlines those aspects that will remain constant, and those that the Command will adapt for the future,” Willison said. DEVCOM will adopt “work where and when you are most productive” as one tailorable characteristic of the objective state. DEVCOM is also looking to more broadly enable the forming of geographically dispersed, cross-competency/cross-organization teams to rapidly deliver integrated solutions. One of the most significant aspects of the concept is the opportunity to attract and retain the ‘best talent anywhere’ and in such, the ability to be fully inclusive, providing our workforce opportunities with few boundaries. “Our embracing of the ‘work from anywhere’ culture in some spaces will open up previously untapped talent pools for us. We have already hired some talent that we would otherwise not have been able to bring onto our team,” Willison said. DEVCOM’s future of work concept is a key component of the command’s Competency-Driven Talent Management Strategy. Those defined competencies will serve as the basis for implementation strategies that will be developed. These strategies will adopt the elements of the concepts, tailored to the unique aspects and demands of the different domains and competencies. Allowing for flexibility is essential.
