    "Army wants to move about a half a billion dollars and cancel the WIN-T Increment 2 and a couple others at the end of fiscal year 2018. Key senators have rapped the Army over WIN-T, whereas House lawmakers are giving Army a pretty thorough questioning over plans to move off WIN-T. Will there be a battle there?

    The whole goal that we have is to take service members that are coming into the Army and being able to hand to them technological communication systems that are at least comparable to what they had — capability in high school. We give a technological gap between what they experience in just civil life and then in what we ask them to do in critical missions.

    The Army has taken 10-year and 20-year plans for technology that has an 18-month shelf life. We’re behind. And obviously, our near peers have continued to modernize, putting in threat our systems and our ability to operate. So, the question is what are we going to do, not just what we’re not going to do.

    Is there any sympathy for their argument that “this isn’t working. We need to rip the bandage off and start over”?

    It’s not true [that] it’s not working. In fact, it’s been delivered, tested and fielded. So, the issue is not it’s not working. The issue is: What are our goals and objectives? What are our technology needs? And how do you achieve those and — the Army’s going to need to have an answer, at least in scoping and in implementation while they explain the nearly six billion dollars that have already been spent."
