In his role, Collins guides a workforce of more than 1,600 personnel who acquire, field and support the communications networks, radios, satellite systems and other hardware and software Soldiers require for information dominance on the battlefield.
Collins joined PEO C3T after serving as the PEO for Intelligence, Electronic Warfare and Sensors (IEW&S) since May 2019. As the PEO IEW&S, he provided technical and managerial oversight of the development, acquisition, fielding, and life cycle support of the Army’s portfolio of intelligence; electronic warfare; cyber; integrated base defense; force protection; position, navigation, and timing; biometrics; and target acquisition programs.
The Army is constantly trying to keep pace with an evolving adversary, which creates challenges in the combat environment with the readiness of our forces and their ability to regain readiness against an enemy that can challenge us across the board.
The key to innovating is the speed of integrating and exploiting innovative technology into the digital battlefield through investments such an open architecture, DevSecOps, next generation governance, and converged data platforms.
Success is defined by iterative solutions delivered at the speed of war. The Army is saving time and money by not being locked into proprietary systems; instead, they own the access or APIs needed to leverage and integrate the latest emerging technologies.
Collins will utilize his knowledge acquired from his career in the private sector to discuss intel and operation mission capabilities, the challenges and priorities of data in warfare and how defense has evolved from the traditional standards to meet the demand of emerging technologies.
