DESP II Program Manager

DESP II allows for two types of tasks:

1. Direct Reliability Maintainability & Deployability (RM&D) of components, systems and subsystems. This task is intended to improve the RM&D of a weapon system end item by directly modifying the design of that end item.
2. Indirect Reliability Maintainability & Deployability (RM&D). Two classes of indirect RM&D tasks are identified:
  A task which must involve process creation, replacement, or improvement that will measurably enhance the RM&D of an existing weapon system end item. Support equipment RM&D applications are included.
  A task that requires a change or modification to an existing manufacturing or repair process that will potentially improve the RM&D of the end item subject to the process. Includes process improvements
which if not implemented could result in serious weapon system degradation.

DESP II includes access to Engineering Services as necessary to:

  Provide for technology insertion.
  Provide for design, prototype and test.
  Provide for development of technical data package.

Since DESP II has already been awarded to AES, DoD program managers can quickly place their RM&D related tasks on this contract for immediate service. The long procurement process is thus avoided.
