How RDER WORKS
The Secretary of Defense will create a budget for allocation in the FY 2023 President’s Budget request to expand multi-Component experimentation in a structured, multi-year campaign of learning.
The Secretary will select among proposed experiments based on alignment to Joint missions and potential to yield demonstrable warfighting utility.
Demonstrations and experiments will be conducted at key exercise venues.
Successful demonstrations and experiments will be quickly transitioned to the Components for fielding as new systems or approaches.
