TYSONS CORNER, VA, August 9, 2018 — Todd Probert, vice president of mission support and modernization at Raytheon‘s (NYSE: RTN) intelligence, information and services business, has said a budget and acquisition framework focused on the use of commercial software development methods is needed to accelerate the delivery of defense capabilities, ExecutiveBiz reported July 24.

Probert cited the U.S. Air Force in a guest article published July 23 as an example of how the Defense Department is leveraging commercial software processes such as Agile and DevOps and combining them with the military’s software engineering and acquisition expertise to bring capabilities faster to service members.
