Per reference (a), this instruction provides the process and governance structure to achieve the alignment of programs, technologies, and requirements. The SWTRG is the decision-making body for aligning existing PORs, new technologies, and new requirements to a given ACB. The SWTRG provides the forum to review courses of action to resolve crossenterprise or cross-sponsor issues. This process and structure will inject fleet warfighting requirements more dynamically into the acquisition process with a fleet feedback mechanism to assist resource sponsors and program managers in satisfying the most pressing Fleet requirements. Per reference (b), combat system training requirements will be adjudicated by the Surface Warfare Training Committee (SWTC). For a given ACB, the SWTC will provide consolidated training requirements and supporting program objective memorandum (POM) documentation to the SWTRG.
Purpose. To issue the process by which the Surface Warfare Tactical Requirements Group (SWTRG) provides guidance, governance, and definition for Surface Navy Combat System incremental modernization to be provided through the Advanced Capability Build (ACB) process. This instruction establishes a structure to validate, prioritize, align, and resource requirements for surface warfare weapons, sensors, and combat systems with ACB deliveries.
